Consultation Visits:
It is advisable to limit consultation visits as most of the doctors are now available on video calls to help you and avoid stepping out for a consultancy.

Eat Right:
A balanced meal with lots of fibre, protein, carbohydrates and at least two to three portions of fruits and vegetables is what works best for mom to be.

Family Matters:
During this pandemic being pregnant & going through that emotional roller coaster ride if someone can make things better is our own family members specially the husband. Go an extra mile to take care of the new mom to be by spending some extra time & supporting her in things around.

Alternative Arrangements:
Try and keep a back up plan for delivery with the growing amount of cases around consult your doctor specially before the last few week of your due date for an alternative hospital near you.
Small nursing homes in your neighbourhood may be a good option. “You don’t want to be in a situation where you are in labour and the hospital you rush to is sealed off.

Stay Positive:
