Hall M, Endress D, Hölbfer S, Maier B. SARS-CoV-2 in pregnancy: maternal and perinatal outcome data of 34 pregnant women hospitalised between May and October 2020. J Perinat Med. 2020 Nov 27;49(2):138-140. doi: 10.1515/jpm-2020-0499. PMID: 33544532.

Objectives: To report clinical data on maternal outcome, mode of delivery and immediate neonatal outcome in women infected with COVID-19.

Methods: Retrospective data collection.

Results: A total of 8.6% of the total population of hospitalised SARS-CoV-2 positive pregnant women were admitted to a critical care unit. The premature birth rate for births before 34+0 weeks of gestation among pregnant women who tested positive for SARS-CoV-2 was 7.1%. One newborn (3.6%) tested positive for SARS-CoV-2 two days after birth and showed symptoms.

Conclusions: Pregnant women with COVID-19 seem to be at higher risk of invasive ventilation, admission to a critical care unit and preterm birth, and should therefore be considered a high-risk-population.
