Bengaluru, Mar 21 (UNI) With Covid-19 impacting humanity in never-seen-before proportion, visionary healthcare leader Dr Hema Divakar has advised pregnant women to maintain strict social distancing by avoiding unnecessary visits to hospitals. Young nursing mothers must take adequate measures to ensure that the virus is not transmitted to infants.
“Social distancing and frequent hand washing are a must for pregnant women. They should stay home and reschedule their routine appointments if they don't have a pregnancy with associated risks. They can communicate with their doctors on the phone or video call or chat or WhatsApp and sort out minor issues,” advised Dr Hema Divakar, Technical Advisor to the Union Ministry of Health & Family Welfare.
In a release here on Saturday, she said that the good news is that the virus does not lead to miscarriage, birth defects or premature delivery. It does not influence the health care provider to alter the time and mode of delivery.
