AbstractBackground: The novel coronavirus disease (COVID-19) is the most challenging health crisis today that we are facing. Against the backdrop of this pandemic, it becomes imperative to determine the effect of this infection on pregnancy and its outcome. Therefore, this study was aimed to determine to evaluate the maternal and fetal outcome in COVID positive pregnant women.
Method: In this retrospective study we included all pregnant women admitted with COVID-19 over period of 15 April 2021 to 31 May 2021. Clinical features and feto-maternal outcomes were assessed.
Results: The incidence of COVID positive pregnant women was found to be increased may be because of increase testing capacities of laboratories. More patients delivered by LSCS(50.54% ). Admission to ICU relatively increased in mothers(15.38%). Increase incidence of iatrogenic preterm births and caesarean sections due to maternal or fetal compromise. All neonates were tested negative for COVID-19. Incidence of IUD(17.64%) appeared to be increased.
Conclusion: There is relatively higher rate of LSCS. Overall preterm delivery and IUD was increased. Maternal ICU admission and death due to COVID-19 complication was also increased.
