Maternal and infant characteristics among women with confirmed or presumed cases of coronavirus disease (COVID-19) during pregnancy
Filetype[PDF-120.60 KB]

  • Description:
    Limited information is available on the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on pregnant women and their newborns. While national data are not available as of August 2020, 12 state vital records offices and the District of Columbia were routinely collecting information on confirmed or presumed COVID-19 cases among pregnant women who then gave birth and reporting this information to the National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS). The table below presents data for this select area on characteristics of women with COVID-19 at any time during pregnancy, and their newborns. These data are based on cases of COVID-19 reported to NCHS and linked to the standard birth record, allowing for an analysis of birth-related data by maternal COVID-19 status. Additional jurisdictions have recently begun reporting maternal COVID-19 cases to NCHS and will be included in future updates. While these data are not representative of all births in the United States, they are currently the only multi-state birth certificate-based data available. Of note, not all of the 13 reporting areas provided information for the total reporting period (April–August). The information provided is based on 16.9% of all births during the reporting period and the characteristics of the mothers and their newborns reflect the jurisdictions reporting COVID status. States also differed in how information on COVID-19 status was obtained and reported to NCHS. See Technical Notes for more information.
