Afshar Y, Silverman NS, Han CS, Platt LD. Clinical guidance and perinatal care in the era of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). J Perinat Med. 2020 Oct 9:/j/jpme.ahead-of-print/jpm-2020-0400/jpm-2020-0400.xml. doi: 10.1515/jpm-2020-0400. Epub ahead of print. PMID: 33035193.

Pregnant women may be at risk for more severe manifestations and sequelae of infection with severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2). At this time, there remain significant evidence gaps to allow for comprehensive counseling of pregnant women and their families, specifically regarding the risks of gestational-age specific maternal outcomes and potential risks of intrauterine or peripartum viral transmission to the fetus or newborn. As maternal fetal medicine providers and consultants, we are uniquely positioned to mitigate the risks associated with maternal infection and to guide the care for infected pregnant women by being able to provide the most current evidence-based recommendations. Such care requires incorporating the rapidly evolving data regarding this virus and its impact on pregnancy, as well as taking a stand to advocate for best scientific and clinical practices to optimize both women’s health and public health during this pandemic.
