Key-points

  • The COVID-19 pandemic remains a rapidly evolving situation, and as new research and data become available, clinical care recommendations should be refined to reflect the most current information.

  • Importance of maintaining outpatient care for pregnant and postpartum women during the pandemic period due to the new coronavirus

  • Provide care so that consultations do not become a place of risk for contamination of users and health professionals. This care must involve the physical space, use of PPE, guidance from professionals and pregnant and postpartum women

  • Importance of vaccination of pregnant women for influenza, thus facilitating the differential diagnosis of respiratory syndromes

  • Provide strategies for health education in prenatal care and postpartum care using new technologies

  • The more expanded the testing for COVID-19, the more it provides protection for professionals and patients
