To assess the cognitive of the public health emergency across Chinese pregnant women, and to analyse the relation of their responding behavior and anxiety level. This cohort study was performed on 252 pregnant women who sought health care during their gestation in a women’s and children’s hospital. The questionnaire was distributed online in the form of voluntary anonymity. Results: During the period of public health emergency, there were 56 cases (22. 2%) with mild anxiety and 3 cases (1. 2%) with moderate anxiety; educational level and the presence of suspected or confirmed cases nearby were risk factors of the women’s anxiety; Compared with women without negative emotions, women with negative emotions such as anxiety tended to develop a high level of knowledge about disease and self-protection. In conclusion, those with lower educational levels and who had suspected or confirmed cases near their residence should be focused. In this study, we have attempted to summarize the suggestion on the prevention of. . . , and self-protection strategies for maternal health management during the public health emergency. The future looks promising.
