- If you are infected with COVID-19 you are still most likely to have no symptoms or a mild illness from which you will make a full recovery.
- If you develop more severe symptoms or your recovery is delayed, this may be a sign that you are developing a more significant chest infection that requires enhanced care; you should contact your maternity care team immediately.
- There may be a need to reduce the number of antenatal visits you have or you will have to do a telemedicine visit with your doctor. However, do not reduce your number of visits without agreeing first with your maternity team.
- If a woman is COVID-19 positive, she should preferably deliver at a tertiary care hospital as complications can occur during delivery.
