Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Since the beginning of the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic at the end of 2019, each of us has developed ways to deal with pregnant patients. These include various tools and recommendations. We believe it is now very timely and important to share these research experiences. Medical teams, specialists, clinicians and scientists are faced each day with the challenge of helping, protecting and caring for one of the most vulnerable groups in the population, pregnant women. This can now also involve the care and treatment of pregnant women who are infected with SARS-CoV-2. At the same time, pregnant women without SARS-CoV-2 infection must also be treated in the context of a worldwide pandemic. What urgent problems need to be dealt with, and what is the mental condition of our patients?

We would like this special issue to be a repository for shared knowledge and observations in this difficult time.

Dr. Karolina Chmaj-Wierzchowska and Dr. Katarzyna Wszołek
