Guidance has been published on the management of COVID-19 in pregnancy. The advice has been developed by the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists (RCOG), the Royal College of Midwives and the Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health, with input from the Royal College of Anaesthetists, Public Health England and Health Protection Scotland.
The guidance states:
Pregnant women do not appear to be more susceptible to the consequences of coronavirus than the general population and there is no evidence that the virus can pass to a baby during pregnancy
As a precautionary approach, pregnant women with suspected or confirmed coronavirus when they go into labour are being advised to attend an obstetric unit for birth but their birth plan should be followed as closely as possible
At the moment there is no evidence that the virus can be carried in breast milk, so it is felt the benefits of breastfeeding outweigh any potential risks of transmission of coronavirus through breast milk
The guidance covers the most up-to-date advice on how coronavirus affects pregnant women and their unborn babies, how labour and birth should be managed in women with suspected or confirmed coronavirus, as well as information on neonatal care and infant feeding.
The possibility that a person may die within the next few days or hours should be recognised and communicated clearly. Decisions should then be made and actions taken in accordance with the person’s needs and wishes. These should be regularly reviewed and decisions revised accordingly.
Sensitive communication should take place between healthcare professionals and the dying person, and those identified as important to them.
The dying person, and those identified as important to them, should be involved in decisions about treatment and care to the extent that the dying person wants.
The needs of families and others identified as important to the dying person should be actively explored, respected and met as far as possible.
An individual tailored plan of care should be agreed, coordinated and delivered with compassion.This includes support to eat and drink as long as they wish to do so, as well as symptom control and psychological, social and spiritual support to ensure their comfort and dignity.
