Trained frontline workers can deliver personalized pregnancy care through the DST that fetches data from doorstep antenatal tests and classifies risk and further course of action.
To support mothers during the pandemic, a COVID-19 Assessment and Screener tool has been added to CareMother. This supports mothers with information on special care in terms of tests to be undertaken, diet and nutrition, during the antenatal period, based on their risk assessment. CareMother has also launched a video series on care during pregnancy named, ‘Don’t Panic, Protect’ to inform mothers on how to care for their pregnancy during the outbreak.
