    Overview

    There is no evidence to show that women who survive Ebola virus disease (EVD) and subsequently become pregnant pose a risk for Ebola virus transmission. However, pregnant women with active EVD and pregnant women who survive EVD without pregnancy loss may transmit the virus during delivery and/or management of obstetric complications. Pregnant women who are contacts of confirmed Ebola cases pose a potential risk.
    This document provides guidance for:
    • screening and triage of pregnant women in the context of an Ebola outbreak;
    • infection prevention and control (IPC) precautions for pregnant women at risk of EVD transmission during childbirth and complication management;
    • management of pregnant EVD cases, contacts and survivors;
    • lactation and Ebola virus disease.
