WVU Medicine provides high-quality, family-centered maternity care to meet the individual needs of all pregnant women – from routine obstetrical care to treatments for mothers and babies at the highest risk. In addition to the care we provide families who have no complications, WVU Medicine serves women throughout the state who face difficult obstetrical situations.
COVID-19 vaccine guidance: As the US begins distribution of the COVID-19 vaccine, the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) has recommended that pregnant and lactating patients still be allowed to decide, with their doctors, whether to receive the vaccine.
You can find ACOG’s complete overview of currently available COVID-19 vaccines & guidance on use in pregnant & lactating patients here.
