Pregnancy during the global COVID-19 Pandemic: Learning from Canadian Women’s Experiences

Sarah Rudrum, Acadia University

For ten weeks between April and July 2020 and then extending into the fall, I undertook a mixed-methods, primarily qualitative, study in which pregnant Canadians completed journal entries in response to prompts about their experiences of maternity care during COVID-19. Practices governing maternity care during the pandemic varied by jurisdiction, and included limits to homebirth, support people at labour, and travel. Documenting women’s experiences of care helps to identify how changes to care impacted pregnant and parturient women.
