COVID - 19 and Pregnancy, Maternal and Newborn Care

The purpose of these bulletins is to share current information and Nova Scotia guidance about care for pregnant and childbearing persons and newborns during the COVID-19 pandemic. Our NS guidelines may differ from those of other countries and possibly from other Canadian provinces. Please consult with IWK and/or NSHA program leaders before adopting any guidance from outside of NS. The format of these documents is adapted with permission from bulletins produced by Vancouver Coastal Health Authority. Our thanks for their willingness to share with Nova Scotia.

Knowledge, understanding and terminology about COVID-19 is changing rapidly. Information in these documents will be modified in response to new data and evidence. NEW content added will be indicated as such. Please check http://rcp.nshealth.ca to ensure you are referring to the latest Maternal Newborn Care Bulletin.
