Introduction: During the outbreak of infectious diseases, pregnant women and their fetuses are more at risk than other populations. The results of some studies indicate that some viral diseases cause unwanted complications in pregnant women and their fetuses and infants. The present study aimed to investigate the symptoms of coronavirus and its possible effects on pregnant women and their newborns.
Methods and Materials: This review article has performed by searching Covid19, Corona, Neonates, Pregnancy, and Pregnant women keywords in various data bases such as PubMed, Science Direct, Google Scholar, Scopus and searching the Central Disease Prevention and Control (CDC) website.
Results: In Covid19 epidemic, pregnant women are more susceptible to infection due to changes in the body system. According to the literatures, pregnant women are at higher risk of severe Covid disease and mortality than non-pregnant women. In addition, pregnant women with Covid19 may be at higher risk for other side effects such as preterm delivery (giving birth earlier than 37 weeks). Furthermore, newborns of pregnant mothers, who are infected with Covid19, will be infected with Covid19 if they are in contact with infected respiratory secretions of their mother or caregivers. The symptoms are milder or sometimes they are asymptomatic. The possibility of vertical transmission of the disease in the mother’s womb is also low.
Discussion and Conclusion: Due to the increased risk of pregnancy complications in pregnant women infected with Covid19, it is recommended that health organizations and officials pay special attention to the implementation of care and support protocols in the case of pregnant women and their babies before and after delivery.
