Objectives: The aim was to make a review on COVID-19 during pregnancy to help in establishment of management plans for pregnant women with corona virus and during labour and postnatal care of the neonates.
Methods: Searches were made in PubMed to detect, recent studies regarding COVID–19 during pregnancy. Data were taken out from relevant manuscripts.
Conclusion: In comparison to MERS and SARS, COVID-19 seems less lethal, as regard to the inadequate number of cases documented till now.
A low-molecular-weight heparin should be given for pregnant women with COVID-19 to reduce the risk of thrombosis.
