India is still facing the Covid-19 crisis and there are still thousands of new cases coming every day. So, it becomes a big concern for pregnant women on how to deal with this critical situation.

Transmission of coronavirus in pregnant women: -
Evidence shows that there has been a vertical transmission of the virus. This means that the transmission from the pregnant woman to the baby antenatally or intrapartum. But there are still limited data around this.
No evidence shows that the breast milk being tested positive for Covid-19.
There are still no data that can prove that transmission can happen through vaginal secretions.

While there are still limited data to this but in the second wave instances shows that pregnant women have affected themselves. So you should take proper precautions for Covid-19 and follow the guidelines provided by the government. For more information, you can contact Crysta IVF which is the top IVF centre in Mumbai.

Now below are some things to consider for pregnant women:-

Make a practice of washing your hands properly and do not forget to wear a mask while going to the hospital or anywhere else.
Maintain a proper social distance from anyone around you.

Visit the hospital only if there is no option left. You can book online consultation and take advice from your doctor for any issues. If there is no option left and you will have to go to the clinic then make sure to follow proper Covid-19 protocols.

Do daily exercise. Don’t be inactive and lazy. Daily activity of a minimum of 45 to 60 minutes is required. You can do Yoga or just walk for 30-45 minutes.

Mental health is as important as physical health. You can do meditation daily to reduce stress levels.

Take enough sleep while nowadays surfing on social media is tempting but do not waste your time there. The sleep of 8 hours a day is a must for pregnant women.
