National Registry for Australian women infected with SARS-COV2 in pregnancy

14 April 2020

The present outbreak of the novel coronavirus SARS-COV2 has the potential to adversely impact pregnant women and their newborns. However, data on the clinical outcomes and optimal management of these women and their babies remains limited.
 
This national registry aims to collect contemporary data on all women infected with SARS-COV2 during pregnancy in Australia, to improve our understanding of the disease and its impacts on the health outcomes of these women and their babies. This registry will provide regular feedback to allow evidence-based management of women and their babies with SARS-COV2 infection in our region.
 
For further information and details about how to get involved please fill in the expression of interest form.
 
RANZCOG President Dr Vijay Roach said: “RANZCOG is grateful to Dr Clare Whitehead and her colleagues for this important initiative. While expediency has been necessary during our response to the Covid-19 pandemic, the best medicine is underpinned by data and evidence. I encourage RANZCOG members to participate in the registry.”
