Woman's Hospital is launching a study researching the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on pregnant women in the U.S..
The hospital says the study is the only one of its kind in Louisiana and one of a select few nationwide.
The project will look to investigate how expecting mothers are being affected physically, mentally and sociologically during the outbreak.
Participants will be asked to complete a 20-minute initial survey with questions concerning things like their mental health, pregnancy, work changes and stress.
They will then receive a 10-minute follow-up survey each week until they deliver their baby.
