Methodology: Integrative, descriptive-explorative review, evidenced in integrative, systematized and qualified analysis, developed through research on online platforms: BIREME and PUBMED, using the descriptors: Pregnant women; Prenatal care and COVID-19. 234 articles were identified in the search platforms, and after applying the inclusion and exclusion criteria and analyzing the studies, 16 articles were selected to compose the present work. Results and discussion: The studies recommend the use of telemedicine/telenursing in prenatal consultations, in addition to intervals between consultations and exams to avoid exposing pregnant women to the high risk of contagion.

Final considerations: it was noted that telemedicine, the reorganization of face-to-face consultations, the attire and qualification of professionals are the strategies used, and that lead to positive results, thus favoring the reduction of the spread of the virus and the increase of the health promotion of the women. pregnant women.
