COVID-19 in pregnancy is associated with increased risk of complications, study shows

Unvaccinated pregnant women are more likely to be admitted for the coronavirus, according to new research published in Nature Medicine magazine.
“COVID-19 in pregnancy is associated with increased risk of the pregnancy specific complications pre-eclampsia, preterm birth and stillbirth,” according to the monthly research magazine.

Noting that pregnant women do not seem to be more susceptible to the virus than non-pregnant women, researchers found that pregnant women are still at “higher risk of severe COVID-19 disease.”

They also found that “pregnant women with SARS-CoV-2 infection are more likely to be admitted to critical care, receive invasive ventilation and extracorporeal membrane oxygenation”.

From December 2020 and October 2021, a total of 2,364 babies were born to mothers with COVID-19 during pregnancy.

“Of these, 2,353 were live births, of which 241 were preterm births,” it added.

While the percentage of premature births in the general population was 8%, that rate was 17% in babies born within 28 days of their mothers being infected with the virus.
