Seattle Mother-Infant COVID-19 study
THANK YOU TO ALL OF OUR PARTICIPANTS
STUDY RECRUITMENT HAS CLOSED. PUBLISHED RESULTS WILL BE POSTED WHEN AVAILABLE.
Help us to understand COVID-19 in families with infants and young children
Researchers from the University of Washington are recruiting mothers infected with COVID-19 and their infants for a study of COVID-19 risks in families. The aims of this study are to examine differences in maternal and infant immune responses and changes in feeding and care related to infection and the pandemic.
We are looking for volunteer mothers in the Greater Seattle area who:
Are at least 18 years old
Have an infant or child under 5 years of age
Are currently or have been previously infected with COVID-19
All participating mothers will be interviewed by phone on 1-3 occassions for up to 2 months. We will ask questions about their family's health, COVID-19 exposures and symptoms, and infant care and feeding practices over the course of the study. Mothers will also be asked to collect finger-prick blood spots from themselves and their infants on 1-3 occassions depending on time since infection.
All costs are covered by the investigators. This study is for research purposes only, not clinical diagnosis. If you are experiencing COVID-19 symptoms, contact your health care provider.
