Pregnancy, Labor, And Delivery After Ebola Virus Disease And Implications For Infection Control In Obstetric Services, United States
Pubmed Central ID:PMC4918171
Description:Many of the survivors of the 2014-2015 epidemic of Ebola virus disease (EVD) in western Africa were women of childbearing age. Limited clinical and laboratory data exist that describe these women's pregnancies and outcomes. We report the case of an EVD survivor who became pregnant and delivered her child in the United States, and we discuss implications of this case for infection control practices in obstetric services. Hospitals in the United States must be prepared to care for EVD survivors.
