There is an uptrend in mental health issues among the general population during COVID. Psychologists speculated that the psychological impact of COVID-19 on pregnant women cannot be neglected. It can have a serious and long-lasting social-emotional impact on expectant mothers. Keeping the above in view, existing review on psychological impact of COVID-19 and its consequences among pregnant women was retrieved via the search on PubMed, Medscape, and Google Scholar database. Evidence also suggested effective coping strategies to be used during this time to manage stress. Guided by research evidence and medical guidelines, a brief guide called “CARE” which focuses on key self-care elements for healthy prenatal and postnatal experience during the COVID-19 crisis, are being discussed in the article. Globally, mental health and well-being awareness among pregnant women is needed.
