With the physiological changes of pregnancy comes a greater susceptibility to COVID-19 infection. Pregnant women are considered to be “at-risk-group”, so what assessment and management strategies can GPs employ to ensure maternal and foetal safety?

In this webinar, Dr Kenneth Nathan discusses pregnancy management in a primary care setting. This webinar examines symptom onset, intrauterine vertical transmission potential, whether vaginal delivery increases infection risk, susceptibility of person-to-person spread post-delivery and recommendations on breastfeeding for COVID-19 positive mothers.
