Furthermore, we keep the service for our patients by phone, via videoconference or in person, just for emergencies.

Is being pregnant a risk factor for contracting coronavirus?

According to a recent communication made public by the Spanish Fertility Society (SEF), pregnant women have not been scientifically proven to be more likely to become infected.

If I am pregnant, do I have a worse prognosis if I have contracted coronavirus?

SEF has ruled out that pregnant women suffer a different effect from the virus than other people that could lead to discourage from becoming pregnant. They add there has not been an aggravation of the disease in infected pregnant patients to date, and there has not been and increased number of miscarriages since this crisis began.
