Interim guidelines on the management of suspected COVID-19/SARS-CoV-2 in the pregnant and post-partum period.
PREGNANCY POST PARTUM GUIDANCE
This is a very anxious time for pregnant women, Midwives and Obstetricians
The Midwives Association of Ireland (MAI) acknowledges the fluid and developing situation facing the health service in respect of Coronavirus and Covid 19. Therefore we respectfully offer the following proposals to the HSE decision makers re Maternity Services for antenatal and post natal care. These proposals are made with the intention of safer, cost effective and clinical, effective care of women, babies and their families particularly at this time. On the whole these proposals are in line with the National Maternity Strategy, evidence based and very do-able with a will and commitment to adjust how we do things naturally.
We have a duty of care to our population and to our staff and together we can help safeguard women and their babies, lighten the load on the health service and diminish the expected and inevitable hardship that this may bring if we work effectively together We have the knowledge skills and ability and we know that the human spirit is strong and viable and we will overcome this pandemic where we work together.
