Committee Opinion No. 400: COVID-19 and Pregnancy

Original: March 13, 2020

Reaffirmed: February 15, 2021

In the current COVID-19 pandemic, the unique needs of pregnant individuals and their fetus/newborn(s) need to be addressed. As with any epidemic, data are evolving and a measured approach to management is required. Based on this evidence to date on COVID-19 as well as the literature on outbreaks of SARS, MERS and other emerging pathogens, and based on evolving data from CANCOVID-Preg, the SOGC’s Infectious Disease Committee has created this committee opinion to help guide maternity care providers in the care of pregnant patients. This guidance is based on the evidence to date and will continue to be updated as more information emerges.
