Telehealth in Maternity Care.
Journal Article (Journal Article;Review)
The use of telehealth is gaining momentum in providing obstetric care. Telehealth through various platforms provides obstetricians and gynecologists and other providers of obstetric and postpartum care with the tools to better facilitate prenatal, intrapartum, and postpartum encounters. Telehealth helps facilitate consultation with specialists and subspecialists in maternal-fetal medicine in a team-based fashion to improve quality and safe obstetric practices in a fragmented obstetric care delivery system, especially in rural access communities. Telehealth can be beneficial especially in the postpartum period for breastfeeding and lactation assistance and for postpartum depression follow-up.
