What tips do you have for pregnant women who are considering changing their birth plans because of COVID-19? What supplies should pregnant women have at home to complement virtual care now that many prenatal appointments are shifting to telemedicine?
In the latest live Q&A with experts in our Ask Maven Anything webinar series, we discussed these and other questions we’re hearing from our members, and are top-of-mind for women and families in light of COVID-19. Join our next virtual roundtable on Thursday, April 9th at 12 pm ET / 9 am PT.
Watch the engaging discussion below for the latest clinical guidance and evolving information about COVID-19 for women and families with Danika Severino Wynn, Maven Midwife and Lactation Consultant; Dr. Jane van Dis, Maven Medical Director and OB-GYN; and Dr. Brian Levine, Reproductive Endocrinologist.
Some questions we discuss include:
- Is every pregnant woman going to be given a mask when they go to the hospital?
- Do you have tips for anyone who is facing labor alone if their partner is sick or immunocompromised?
- What will egg freezing or IVF look like later this year—will it be much different than pre-COVID?
- What can we do to keep newborns safe?
“Pregnant women I’m speaking with are really anxious about their birth plans. We know that birth can’t be planned, and COVID-19 is showing us just how little control we have over our plans,” said Danika Severino Wynn, Maven Midwife and Lactation Consultant. “So, you want to make sure your birth team is on the same page as you, and that they are aware of your needs for support that have evolved because of the changing environment. You can come onto Maven and speak with a doula, a midwife, or others who can help you with your birth plan.”
