Obstetric population because of its unique and varying needs specific for different gestations justifies for distinctive considerations in times of pandemic like COVID-19. Healthcare facilities providing obstetric care need to develop contingency plans for minimizing antenatal visits to limit exposure of both healthy pregnant women and care providers from ill people. However, to mitigate any potential adverse effects of reduced antenatal visits, intelligent and smart use of evolving telemedicine capabilities can provide the continuum of care despite overwhelming burden due to pandemic. A collaborative work-model involving health workers in the community and the regional levels of health centres also has the potential to prevent the catastrophic collapse of obstetric care services during any pandemic like COVID-19.
