Introduction. Telemedicine technologies are increasingly being used in various areas of medicine. Such disciplines as obstetrics and gynecology are no exception. Purpose. A search was conducted in Russian and international databases.

Materials and methods. Relevant articles were selected for detailed study. 65 articles were found on the review topic for the period 1999-2020, including 8 Russian ones, with a significant increase in publications in 2019-2020.

Results. When analyzing the subject of articles, it was revealed that most of them are devoted to remote monitoring of women during pregnancy and the postpartum period, correction of somatic pathology (arterial hypertension, diabetes mellitus), and mental problems. There has been an increase in publications on telegynecology in connection with the COVID-19 pandemic.

Conclusions. In comparison with some other areas of telemedicine, the number of publications on teleobstetrics and telegynecology is small, but their growth in recent years and the existing experience of implemented projects show the prospects for their development.
