Pregnancy care during COVID-19
Going to prenatal and postpartum appointments during COVID-19
Even during COVID-19, you should keep prenatal and postpartum appointments with your care provider. They may ask to use telehealth for some appointments. This lets you meet with them over a phone or computer.
Some visits will still need to take place in person. To stay healthy during visits, make sure to:
- Attend your appointment alone
- Practice social distancing
- Wash your hands often
- Wear a mask
If you have concerns about going to your appointments during COVID-19, call your care provider or health plan today

Managing stress, anxiety and depression due to COVID-19
Being pregnant or taking care of a new baby during COVID-19 may have you feeling uncertain, nervous or worried. You aren’t alone. These are normal feelings to have, especially during a pandemic, and there are ways to help manage stress, anxiety or depression during this time.
While it can be difficult, it’s important to focus on yourself and your mental health. Practicing self-care, creating a daily routine and taking breaks from the news can help. If you are feeling lonely or isolated, talk to family, friends, or your care provider.
