Guidance for healthcare professionals on managing coronavirus (COVID-19) infection in pregnancy has been published by the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists, Royal College of Midwives and Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health, with input from the Royal College of Anaesthetists, Public Health England and Health Protection Scotland.

The guidance covers the most up-to-date advice on how coronavirus affects pregnant women and their unborn babies, how labour and birth should be managed in women with suspected or confirmed coronavirus, as well as information on neonatal care and infant feeding.

As the situation unfolds, we will update the link below to make sure you access the latest guidelines - please check back to keep up to date.

I'm sure everyone is fed up with the mantra of "wash your hands" but this article on the science of soap and water explains why we must all do it and not just for this Covid 19 outbreak.
