Abstract: The coronavirus disease outbreak has been declared a pandemic by the World Health Organization, with more than 11.5 million cases reported till date- as of July, 2020. Recent evidence suggests that pregnant women are more likely to develop severe illness from COVID-19. There should be strategies in place to deliver for COVID-19 suspected or confirmed pregnant cases so that the safety of patients and health care workers is ensured. It has seen that early preparedness in such circumstances helps to reduce the transmission of disease to the health care workers. Multidisciplinary care coordination involving Maternal-Fetal Medicine, Infectious Disease, Pulmonary/Critical care, Obstetric care, Anesthesia and neonatology should be followed. This article helps to guide how to get prepared for a cesarean section on a COVID positive patient while reminding all healthcare workers of the importance of selfprotection, hand hygiene and selfcare as we continue in our mission to care for patients who are at the heart of all that we do.
