In our study, 53% of women would choose to have a caesarean section over a vaginal delivery if they were diagnosed with COVID-19. A. Khalil et al. showed that nearly half of pregnant women infected with COVID-19 had caesarean deliveries . As there is no convincing evidence of vertical transmission, vaginal delivery is not contraindicated in patients with COVID-19 . Thus, Caesarean section is preferred over vaginal delivery in the face of maternal deterioration and fetal compromise where delivery is imminent.

Across the years of 2016 to 2019, the percentage of female students admitted to engineering and engineering sciences hovers around 22%. Similarly, about 22% of students who graduate from these fields are women in this time period. Pregnant women attending antenatal clinics were provided with an internet link to complete an online electronic survey on Google platform using a quick response code on any mobile device with internet access. The online electronic survey was created using CHERRIES (Checklist for Reporting Results of Internet E-Surveys) and the questions were designed by a group of senior obstetricians.
The datasets used during the current study are available from the corresponding author on reasonable request. The steps that GIC, Temasek and SGX Group are taking highlight only a portion but important part of Asia’s unique contribution to the climate change conversation.

The study reflected that 18% of the Singaporean women interviewed are «most likely to initiate» sexual activity with their personal and intimate partners. R.W.K.L acquired the data, contributed to the analysis and drafting of the manuscript. S.L.L contributed to the analysis and interpretation of data, and drafting the manuscript.

In our study, only 35% of pregnant women will choose to breast feed if they were diagnosed with COVID-19. There is also limited data to guide the postnatal management of babies of mothers who tested positive for COVID-19 in the third trimester of pregnancy. Currently, possibility of infection from breast milk remain uncertain although there is recent evidence to suggest a small risk of transmission through breast feeding . As breast feeding requires close contact, direct breast feeding may be of concern in infected mothers. Hence, infected mothers should be advised to wear surgical masks, cleaning their breast before expression via breast pumps to bottle feed their neonates to reduce the risk of neonatal transmission.
