As COVID-19 (Coronavirus) moves from epidemic to pandemic status, millions of people all over the world are concerned about the effects on the health of themselves and their neighbors. For women who are pregnant, they may have further concerns not only for their own health but for the health of their baby.
At this time there are many questions about the novel COVID-19 virus. We do not have an abundance of concrete data or studies to draw from currently as this is a new virus. However, we do have studies regarding similar coronaviruses such as SARS and MERS. Additionally, we are learning more each day about COVID-19.
If you have concerns about this virus and your pregnancy we recommend you discuss this with our maternal-fetal medicine specialist. You may set up an appointment in person as our office is taking necessary safety measures to better keep our staff and our patients healthy. You can also inquire about our telemedicine services, which are currently being set-up to better help our patients.
With so much going on we are here to help answer questions to the best of our ability and ensure you receive the best care during this time.
