Watch our Workshop 

We welcome allied health professionals, clinicians and academics to share their reflections and research during our online workshop, "Generation COVID: Perinatal Transitions", which examines the impact of COVID-19 and social restrictions on pregnancy, childbirth, and early life/new parenthood in the UK.

We hope to bring together voices invested in assessing and advocating for well-being from pregnancy through childhood, to shed light on the consequences and challenges of accessing perinatal healthcare and caring for the generation born amidst the pandemic.

We are collecting short summaries of 200-250 words speaking to the broad themes of the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on pregnancy, childbirth and infancy/new parenthood.

Please send brief 200-250 word reflections on your experience or abstracts of your research using this form:

Our discussions will highlight reflections from relevant stakeholders, including paediatricians, midwives, clinical home visitors, carers from diverse backgrounds, along with relevant perinatal researchers. The goal is to ground scientific results in the reality of clinical practice, enabling the translation of  findings into healthcare and policy insights. 


We hope you will join us by attending and presenting relevant perspectives on Generation COVID in order to guide further research, clinical work, and policy-making.
