It included two excellent presentations and a lively Q&A.

Dr Sarah Stock and Dr Rachael Wood have spent their entire careers caring for women and babies and trying to find ways to make pregnancy and birth as safe as it can be. They are the Co-Leads on the Covid-19 in Pregnancy Study in Scotland study (COPS) which is a new prospective cohort study using linked data.  

The team will describe the incidence of COVID-19 in pregnancy in Scotland and determine how COVID-19 infection affects pregnant women and their babies. Read more about it.
