First reported in Wuhan, China in December 2019, coronavirus-associated disease (COVID-19) has quickly spread across the globe, prompting the World Health Organization to declare the COVID-19 outbreak a pandemic on March 11, 2020. Communication to obstetric care providers about this disease, how best to advise pregnant women during this uncertain time, and how to protect themselves while providing care is imperative. Join Drs. Laura Riley, Brenna Hughes, and Suwan Mehra as they discuss frequently asked questions from MFMs about COVID-19.
