1. Wash your hands

Make sure you always wash your hands with soap and water during pregnancy. This method remains the most effective measure to prevent the transmission of the Covid-19 corona virus. You can also use hand sanitizer if soap and water are not available.

2. Keep your immune system

Pregnant women also have to maintain their immune system well to be stronger during pregnancy. You can eat healthy foods, such as vegetables, fruits and foods high in protein.

Pregnant women can also take supplements or prenatal vitamins as recommended by doctors to increase their immune system. In addition, regular exercise and adequate rest can also help.

3. Wear a mask when traveling

Pregnant women should also always wear a mask when in a crowd and around sick people. Instead of wearing a cloth mask, it is better to wear an N95 mask or a more effective medical mask.
