Coronavirus disease (COVID), also known as COVID-19, has brought the immense challenges for the health-care system globally. All the branches of medicine are equally involved in managing these patients. During this pandemic, care of obstetric patients in terms of obstetric analgesia becomes crucial. Hence, the purpose of this review was to draft a basic model of strategies related to the provision of safe obstetric analgesia during this coronavirus pandemic, which will assist the health-care providers across the developing countries to formulate their own protocols depending upon the resource availability. All research articles related to obstetric analgesia during the COVID-19 pandemic from January 2020 to December 01, 2020 available on PubMed, Cochrane, Google scholar, and Embase are included in this study. The keywords used for data search were “obstetric analgesia during COVID-19,” “coronavirus pandemic,” “Labor pain,” “obstetric pain management guidelines,” and “regional anesthesia during COVID-19.” Eventually, our review yielded the most recentmodel for the provision of safe and effective obstetric analgesia practices during the COVID-19 pandemic across the developing countries.
