Pregnant during the pandemic: All the ways to stay as healthy as possible

If you or someone close to you is pregnant right now, congratulations!

Despite the coronavirus pandemic, this is an exciting time.

In fact, despite the idea that people are starting to re-emerge from self-quarantine, the recommendations on what you should do, health wise if you’re with child, aren’t much different than the recommendations for otherwise healthy people: wear a mask, continue to socially distance yourself and wash those hands.

Dr. Lori Boardman, a chief quality officer at Orlando Health Winnie Palmer Hospital for Women and Babies, shared some more tips in the video above.

And please, Boardman said, don’t fear medical settings (including the hospital), and continue to go to those doctors appointments!
