Why is it important?

In 70% of our cases, the clinical course of COVID-19 in the pregnant women was mild. Only 30% of the women had pneumonia, 5% of whom developed a critical condition. High CRP and D-dimer levels correlated with severe pneumonia, whereas an NLR decrease sug- gested a favorable outcome for pregnant women. Vaginal delivery appears to be safe, as 78% of our patients had vaginal delivery and none of the newborns were infected.


It is one of the first studies that describes early on the behavior of the virus SARS-Cov-2 in pregnant women and how the situation was managed contrary to what literature had been reporting up to that time.
