According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, women who are pregnant or were recently pregnant are more likely to need hospitalization, intensive care, or have other complications from Covid-19 than those who are not pregnant. In addition, women who contract Covid-19 while pregnant are more likely to experience issues during pregnancy and experience preterm birth and stillbirth. Other factors which can increase the risk of severe illness from Covid-19 include underlying medical conditions, age, health inequities, exposure to high numbers of coronavirus cases or low levels of vaccinated people.

“We are pleased to be able to offer this series of informational workshops to those who have questions about Covid-19,” commented Project Self-Sufficiency Executive Director Deborah Berry-Toon. “Receiving up-to-date information will allow all of us to make informed choices about our health and the health of our families and ultimately help the entire community.”
