The COVID-19 pandemic that has been going on since 2020 has resulted in restrictions on activities outside the home and restrictions on meeting and consulting with doctors at health service centers. This is due to prevent the increasingly widespread spread of COVID-19 and reduce the death rate from COVID-19. However, there is a negative effect of this restriction, namely on routine examinations of pregnant women. If pregnant women do not understand and get good supervision during their pregnancy, there will be adverse effects such as complications in pregnancy which result in an increased risk of death for pregnant women. Therefore, it is necessary to consider other ways in assisting the supervision of pregnant women or educating pregnant women to find out what complications can occur during pregnancy so that mothers become more aware and immediately check their pregnancy. The use of telemedicine in assisting routine examinations of pregnant women is one way that can help in overcoming the problem of limiting the meeting of pregnant women and also helps in reducing the mortality rate of pregnant women.
