    Is there a more 'dangerous' time during pregnancy if you contract the virus? Eg early days or 3rd trimester.

    Should I be self isolating? Work is still open, but I can work flexibly. We have a low number of cases in my state and outside of work I’m social distancing, as well as minimizing contact with people at work.

    Midwife said it was OK and I’m not too stressed, we have a lot of measures in place at work, but my husband and parents are freaking out and telling me to stay home... as much as I’m an introvert, staying home for the next 12-14 weeks before Bub comes, and then being stuck at home with a newborn would do my head in!!

    Hi PossumVic

    Thanks for your question. I asked this of Dr Brad Robinson when I spoke to him last week. He spoke about the research so far and said that there is no evidence to suggest there's any transmission of the virus from mother to unborn baby and therefore no more 'dangerous' time for a pregnant woman to contract the virus.

    Hi!

    Thanks for asking your question! How are you going? Things are moving so quickly these days and circumstances are changing daily.

    The advice from when I spoke to Dr Brad Robinson is that there is no increase risk from the infection if you're pregnant. So YOUR individual risk remains the same as when you were not pregnant.

    His advice at the time is that women need to make the best decision for them in their circumstance but to be as vigilant and cautious as possible.
