Pregnancy, birth, and early childhood during COVID-19: Information Hub

7 May 2020

The Irish Centre for Maternal and Child Health Research (INFANT) at UCC has created a dedicated Hub for families, researchers and healthcare professionals to find factual, up-to-date, and accessible information about pregnancy, birth, and early childhood during COVID-19. 

The INFANT Research Centre’s COVID-19 Hub is designed to be a one-stop shop. It brings all the latest public advice, science and clinical guidelines for pregnancy, birth, newborns, and early childhood during COVID-19 together into one place.

INFANT Director Prof Geraldine Boylan said the Hub has been implemented to address some of the anxieties and concerns prompted by the pandemic.

“COVID-19 has impacted everyone’s lives and INFANT, as a Maternal and Child Health Research Centre, is particularly conscious of the impact of this crisis on our many colleagues working in the front line in Cork University Maternity Hospital and Cork University Hospital, and the many mums that are pregnant and giving birth during this uncertain time."

Working together with the HSE, the Hub provides information and clinical guidelines not just for families, but also for researchers and healthcare professionals.
