Pregnancy can be a very stressful time.
Project RESCUE stands for Reducing Elevated Stress from COVID-19 Exposure. In this research study, our team will leverage its mastery of sophisticated magnetic resonance imaging studies to identify risks of COVID-19-related maternal psychological distress changes how your baby’s brain develops during pregnancy and after birth. This important study aims to answer many pressing questions. With your help, we’ll conduct multiple MR imaging studies. We’ll perform clinical, genetic, environmental, physiological, behavioral and neuropsychiatric evaluations starting during pregnancy and continuing through the time your child is a preschooler. Because your health and your infant’s well-being are our No. 1 priority, we are working with community partners to weave a comprehensive safety net that strengthens maternal mental health, boosts parental resiliency and enriches infants’ early environment to offset harms experienced in the womb.
We’re here to help!
