The ways the COVID-19 pandemic has disrupted the care of pregnant people, and the ways health systems have been responding, offer important lessons for health system leaders to both mitigate the immediate harms and work toward the long-term opportunities for equitable systems improvement.
Ariadne Labs convened clinicians and people who recently gave birth, as well as health care administrators, researchers, and others from across the United States, to characterize how health systems and communities have responded to challenges in maternity care during the COVID-19 pandemic. The report translates these challenges and lessons learned into actionable recommendations for investing in innovations that have promise for sustained impact.
