Does pregnancy itself make a woman more susceptible to COVID-19? What advice should we be giving to pregnant women in the third trimester? How is remote monitoring being utilized? Dr. Regan Theiler discusses how they’re advising and caring for pregnant patients, what’s being reported as potential complications for pregnant patients who’ve been infected with SARS-CoV-2, and what isolation precautions should be applied during and after delivery.
