The results showed that in the health sector there were considerable changes. This change is not only carried out by medical personnel, but also needs to be balanced by public awareness. Due to this pandemic, people must pay more attention to themselves, especially for pregnant women. For pregnant women, it can be done through online examinations and consultations with medical personnel or face to face with strict health protocols. In addition, monitoring can also be carried out independently from home by referring to the MCH handbook. Understanding and knowledge of pregnant women is needed in addition to reducing the intensity of pregnancy checks.

Optimizing the health of pregnant women is very much needed in reducing the incidence of Covid-19 and reducing maternal anxiety during the Covid-19 pandemic.
