In view of the current COVID-19 pandemic and the effect this will have on all healthcare providers and family members, we would like to share the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists' guidance on COVID-19 in pregnancy for healthcare professionals. It aims to help provide safe care to women with suspected/confirmed COVID-19 and to reduce onward transmission. The document can be downloaded below.
On 13 May 2020, the guidance version 9 was issued by the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists, Royal College of Midwives and Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health, with input from the Royal College of Anaesthetists, Public Health England and Health Protection Scotland. It is available for download below.
While the guidance primarily addresses healthcare professionals, the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists also published information for pregnant women and their families in a Q&A format as well as an occupational health guidance for employers and pregnant women. Both can be accessed here and downloaded below.
The IMPRINT network has developed a survey for monitoring how immunisation efforts for pregnant women, newborns and infants are impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.
