Studying Women’s Experiences During Birth and the Postpartum Period During COVID-19

Giving birth can be stressful at the best of times, but giving birth during a pandemic? That is a whole other level.

Dr. Deepika Goyal is a professor and researcher in the Valley Foundation School of Nursing at San José State University and is studying the emotional and psychological impact of COVID-19 on mothers with newborn children. She is collaborating on this internet-based study with Dr. Cheryl Beck from the University of Connecticut School of Nursing.

The study is being conducted to better understand women’s experiences at the time of their baby’s birth and the first few weeks after the birth during the COVID-19 pandemic and is open to all women over the age of 18 who gave birth February 1, 2020 or later.
