I will be delivering a baby at St Thomas’ Hospital who has been diagnosed prenatally with Congenital Heart Disease, what precautions should I take before my delivery, with the Coronavirus pandemic in mind?
The guidelines are changing rapidly so always go with most up to date information from the Midwives. This information is also available on the Guy’s and St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust Maternity Services page. Pregnant women over 28 weeks gestation are advised to isolate and adhere to social distancing where possible and only go outside for essential exercise and shopping etc. Please do not see anyone outside of your household. Some appointments will be changed to Virtual. When you come in for appointments you must attend alone. All staff will be in PPE to protect you.
