Hello Zella,

Thank you for the question.

Outbreaks of COVID-19 require us to be vigilant. Given the increasing number of sufferers, caution is the most important step. Because, not all people who experience COVID-19 will show typical symptoms. In fact, if you are pregnant, you belong to a group that is at risk of experiencing severe symptoms when contracting COVID-19 because your endurance is relatively weak.

Even so, if to do a routine pregnancy checkup, we recommend that you still do it. Because, with routine pregnancy checks, the condition of the fetus in your womb can be evaluated, as well as your health status. Thus, pregnancy disorders, such as the baby's weight is less than optimal, chronic maternal disease, congenital defects, amniotic fluid disorders, and so on can be evaluated earlier such as by ultrasound, blood tests, physical examinations, or other supporting examinations, and then treated further.

You should discuss this again with your doctor or obstetrician. Not only that, in order to minimize your risk of exposure to the virus, the following steps need to be taken when doing routine pregnancy checks:

 If possible, register first by telephone or online to minimize the time you wait in line Try not to ride public transportation or cause you to have contact with the crowd Make sure you are always clean, wash your hands frequently with running water and soap or use a hand sanitizer every opportunity, not carelessly holding public facilities (including elevator buttons, door handles) Use a mask if you are coughing, sneezing, fever, or runny nose When you return home, take a shower, wash your hands, and change your clothes. Maintain endurance You, with regular breaks, eat healthy foods, and also live a healthy lifestyle. Hopefully this helps ...
