Poster 27: Michael Tao – Pregnant During a Pandemic: Preliminary Study on the Impact of COVID-19 Related Stress on Neonatal Outcomes

Faculty mentor: Sheila Crowell

This study compared archived birth outcome data collected before the onset of Covid to a smaller sample of births during the pandemic. For the births during the pandemic, we expect to find lower apgar scores, lower birth weights, lower birth lengths, lower ponderal indexes, and lower head circumferences. We found that birth outcomes collected for births during the pandemic are no different than birth outcomes before the pandemic.
