Hello Mrs. Sinta Rosyadi,

Controlling pregnancy every month is important to ensure the health of the mother and fetus. But at this time, the presence of the COVID-19 outbreak made a place that allowed many people to gather very vulnerable to transmitting the corona virus. Pregnant women also experience changes in immunity so that they are more susceptible to various infections. The Indonesian Obstetrics and Gynecology Association (POGI) calls for delay in attending obstetricians unless pregnant women:

Great vomiting
Bleeding during pregnancy
Severe abdominal contractions or pain
Rupture of membranes
High blood pressure
Severe headache
Does not feel fetal movements

But considering that you are 37 weeks pregnant and next week you are 38 weeks pregnant or near labor, you should contact your obstetrician by telephone or other media to ask this. If you don't have contact with your doctor, you can ask the hospital you control by telephone. At present most hospitals already have systems for online and telephone consultation to reduce the spread of COVID-19.

If your obstetrician previously said your pregnancy is a high risk such as twin pregnancies, there is a history of high blood pressure or bleeding, a history of premature birth or other things, of course you are required to routine control to the hospital. If your obstetrician asks you for direct control, be sure to maintain safety and prevent transmission by using a mask, avoid gathering places, use private vehicles if possible, and wash your hands frequently.

Suggestions for pregnant women to avoid contracting COVID-19 include:

Wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If water and soap are not available, use alcohol-based hand sanitizers 60-70%
Consumption of nutritious foods and vitamins for pregnancy
Avoid going outside the house if there is no important business, if forced then use a mask and clothes that close tightly, avoid touching your face before washing your hands. When you get home, immediately clean yourself with a shower
As much as possible avoid contact with people who are sick
Clean and disinfect objects that are touched frequently
Avoid the crowd

Hopefully this is useful,
