With immense interest we read the article entitled, ‘Implications for the future of Obstetrics and Gynaecology following the COVID-19 pandemic: a commentary’ by Kasaven et al. The article briefs on the challenges faced and assesses the impact of COVID-19 on the healthcare workforce, service providers and public perception. Pregnant women constitute a vulnerable group because of their increased risk of developing complications from viral respiratory infections. To tackle the unmet demands of obstetric care amidst the social distancing protocols and the halting of outpatient services, many obstetric patients have been using telehealth.
