Overview

About this study

The purpose of this study is to assess the experience of low income pregnant women at an inner-city health system with seeking and receiving care. 

Significant disparities in health care and birth outcomes are seen in the US during normal times. During COVID-19, limited access to health care resources, social distancing and stay at home orders, and shortages of food and other necessities may exacerbate these disparities.
