To New Haven and Area Neighbors, Colleagues, Birth Mothers, Fathers, Grandparents, Community Health Workers, Midwives, Doulas, Family Medicine, Ob/Gyn and Pediatric Providers, Maternal and Child Health Activists/Advocates, Movers & Shakers:
Tomeka Frieson, a member of the Community Alliance for Research and Engagement (CARE) as well as a Yale College senior studying Ecology & Evolutionary Biology. She is writing her senior thesis on a subject of passionate interest, maternal and child health. Tomeka is asking for volunteers (who delivered at Yale New Haven Hospital) for her study looking at the association between stress caused by COVID-19-related events and birth outcomes. She wants to better understand how the stress potentially caused by COVID-19 and other events during the year 2020 has impacted birth outcomes.
Obtaining responses would allow researchers-in-training such as Tomeka to advance understanding of how novel global health pandemics impact birth outcomes in mothers of all races and ethnicities. The findings from this study will inform further preventative research, interventions, and resources to more effectively address stress during pregnancy and over a lifetime. She is looking for mothers who have given birth to children between November 2019 and February 2021.
