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 14 October 2020, the guidance version 12 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. It can be accessed here and downloaded below.
Further regularly updated information on maternal, antenatal and postnatal care and COVID-19 can be found on the website of the Royal College of Obstetricians &Gynaecologists.
A new publication by Chris Gale, Maria A Quigley, Anna Placzek et al. portrays characteristics and outcomes of neonatal SARS-CoV-2 infection in the UK.
