Will my regular prenatal appointments change?
Your doctor, nurse, or midwife will work with you to make a plan for your visits during pregnancy. If you live in an area where Covid 19 is spreading quickly, there will likely be some changes. For example:
- Your partner might not be able to join you for appointments
- If you have any symptoms of Covid 19, you’ll likely be asked to wear a medical mask during your appointments
- Your doctor, nurse, or midwife might group certain tests together so you don’t need to go in as often
- You may be able to have some visits handled via telemedicine, meaning over a phone or video conference.
These changes can feel stressful. It helps to remember that the goal is to help protect you and others.
