About The Study: This cross-sectional study found that most survey respondents who gave birth between June and December 2020 did not use prenatal telehealth, and a personal preference for in-person care was the most common reason. Patients’ preferences should influence how prenatal telehealth, which has both benefits and drawbacks, is incorporated into their care.

Authors: Rebecca A. Gourevitch, Ph.D., of the University of Maryland in College Park, is the corresponding author.
