Pregnant in a pandemic: in conversation with generation COVID, 31 March 2022


Our ‘In Conversation with Generation COVID’ platform enables a cathartic dialogue between new/expectant parents, clinicians and researchers to shine a light on the COVID-19 pandemic’s impact on family wellbeing and health.

Together, the COVID-19 in the Context of Pregnancy, Infancy and Parenting (CoCoPIP) study of 2,000 families from diverse backgrounds across the UK and the Pregnant in the Pandemic project interviewing and photographing the experiences of a range of parents-to-be document the resilience that families have shown in the face of uncertainty. Our conversation between new parents impacted by the pandemic and child development researchers intends to give “Generation COVID” families a voice for their stories. We hope our conversations will be a force for insight into the vital questions around the impact of the pandemic on perinatal mental health, infant development and healthcare policies which support family well-being.

The event will be online.

This event has been organised jointly by Cambridge Reproduction and the PIPKIN (Perinatal Imaging Partnership with Families) project within the Department of Psychology. It is part of the project "Generation COVID UK", supported by the Cambridge Reproduction Conceptions Fund.
