What to do if you are pregnant

As soon as you find out you're pregnant speak to a GP or midwife.

They'll support you and give you all the information you need. They'll also make sure you receive safe and personal maternity care.

If you're pregnant, it's important you:

  • wash your hands regularly
  • stay at home as much as possible and follow the advice on social distancing, such as staying at least 2 metres (3 steps) away from other people
  • stay away from anyone who has symptoms of COVID-19

If you’re more than 28 weeks pregnant it’s especially important to follow this advice.

You still need to go to all of your pregnancy (antenatal) scans and appointments unless you're told not to.
