Hi, my name is Ashley Locke and I’m a producer at Here & Now. My first child is due in March and I'm over the moon.

Pregnant people are one of the high-risk groups for COVID-19 — on top of challenges like figuring out what foods to avoid and keeping up with appointments — but far fewer are vaccinated than the general public. Some people have questions about safety for themselves and their babies, but they find little guidance on how to make the best choices.

If you're also pregnant and navigating the pandemic, I want to hear about your experiences. Tell me your concerns and what questions you have about living with omicron in 2022.

Fill out the questionnaire below — and if you can, please send us a voice recording of your responses. You can also submit responses and voice recordings to 

Your answers may be used on air and/or on an expert advice segment with our host about navigating omicron during pregnancy.
