Stating that pregnant women undoubtedly have faced a lot of problems during the pandemic, the release added that arrangements should be made for the women to deliver their babies in hospitals/ centres even if they are undergoing treatment.

The release added that post deliveries arrangements and guidelines should also be set up as transmission of coronavirus through breast milk (close contact between mother and baby) from mother to child is also high.
