Updated advice for the care of pregnant women

05 June 2020

In light of the successful flattening of the curve in Australia and New Zealand, RANZCOG has updated our advice regarding routine antenatal care and birth. 

A) Antenatal visits may now be undertaken face to face and at usual intervals.
B) Antenatal face to face classes can now resume within the limitations of social distancing requirements.
C) Accompanying partner at routine visits, hospital visitors and number of support persons in labour as per local protocols, allowing for social distancing measures.
D) Routine screening for gestational diabetes (GDM), refer here.
 
The College recognises that individual institutions and other jurisdictions will have their own protocols in place and these should be adhered to. There remains a risk of a second wave of infection and all social distancing and hygiene precautions should remain in place.
