Pregnant Women in the UK Are Being Told to Stay Home for 3 Months But Elsewhere, Doctors Disagree with This Advice

Pregnant women in the UK are being informed they will need to stay indoors for three months as they are among the more vulnerable to coronavirus.

The government added mothers-to-be to the growing list of most “at-risk” people for the first time, along with the elderly and those with health conditions.

Officials stated the measure was “for precaution” as it is too early to say if COVID-19 poses a significant threat to expectant mothers.

Pregnant women are more likely to catch an infection than women who are not pregnant, according to these same doctors and officials.

But England’s chief doctor has previously warned he does not think women should start worrying about passing coronavirus to their babies.

Currently, there is currently zero evidence to suggest the virus can be transmitted via the womb or through breast milk.

But Dr. Ric Gordon, an Australian medical expert, slammed the claims — stating how the 12-week isolation was not necessary.

“The current guidelines through our own college suggests women are not more susceptible when they’re pregnant to this particular virus,’ he shared with the Today Show on Tuesday.

“They should go about their normal self-isolating procedures of not getting too close to people, washing hands, and if they get sick, report the symptoms as quickly as possible.”

Dr. Gordon also shared how there is zero clinical evidence that suggests the virus can be passed onto an unborn baby.

“We can reassure pregnant women it is very unlikely this particular virus will affect their babies,” he said.

“There doesn’t seem to be an increase in miscarriage rate and there doesn’t seem – the data is small – there is no evidence to suggest the virus will affect their baby unless they contract the virus after the baby is born.”

“The baby is susceptible to viruses as we all are after it’s born.”
