Effect of COVID-19 Pandemic on Maternal & Child Health Services

The COVID-19 pandemic has grossly affected the lives of people since its onset in December 2019 across the world. The pandemic crippled the healthcare system and resulted in major changes in it. This led to poor or inadequate delivery of many non-COVID health services, especially maternal and child health services. Although COVID-19 does not directly effect pregnancy outcomes, unsupervised pregnancies and the absence of routine antenatal visits may have indirect adverse effects on maternal health. Please let us know if you have come across any non-COVID healthcare services being effected.......

Informative pandemic has affected every corner of life what to talk of health and health of all categories not only of maternal perinatal etc basically such a dreaded disease related to health services which had crumbled up in front of huge problem

Nice updates but I think there is direct effect of covid infection if pregnant lady is affected.I knew two case one had abortion after covid inf and one had still birth 1 month after covid infection and mother also died perhaps due to heart attack.

NICE ILLUSTRATION IT HAS BEEN POSTULATED THAT COVID PANDEMIC ISSUE DIES NOT HAVE MUCH EFFECT ON CHILDREN AND DUE TO THEIR HIGH IMMUNITY HOWEVER PREGNANCY ITSELF IS A KIND OF REFERING LOW IMMUNITY TO MORHER SO NEW BIRN MAY BE AFFECTD TGATS WHY NOW VACCINATATION HAS BEEN ADVOCATED IN PREGNANCY TO BOOST IMMUNITY

Very important topic discussed today . Thanks for your initiative and knowledge sharing with us . But pandamic was unpresidented in nature affecting the mother child care system of whole world . India is a traditional country .. delivery of pregnant women was big challenge but managed any how as it a natural phenomenon .It discloses the unnecessary C -section Caesarean section done in India as many birth were done in normal delivery. Immunization was hampered since March 2020 after Lockdown . Again it was in big trouble in second wave .It was threat to our immunization system and child health care system .But now in second wave both immunization for children and vaccination for children Covid 19 should be managed carefully . Pandamic was the biggest challenge for pregnant women and kids .

Very significant & practical post on effect of COVID-19 pandemic on MCH services. As per UNICEF data India was projected to record the highest number of births since March 2020 when COVID-19 declared as Pandemic. Really routine ANC care could be followed due to this Pandemic .Pregnant mothers & their care takers are in stress in this Corona era.

Pregnancy should be postponed

Maternal and child health are affected by covid which can be prevented with vaccination of mother

Of course due to covid all other aspects of health care are directly or indirectly affected. And on top of that the mental health of many people who are not sick physically is also affected.

Very informative update ! Sir
