Covid - 19 is a pandemic respiratory disease that recently has arised global health problems. Due to the changes in physiological state and the immune system function in pregnant women, they are more susceptible to this disease. Little is known about the effects of this disease on pregnancy and its complications. Therefore, the purpose of this study was to review the presented articles on the prevalence, severity and complications of this disease in pregnancy and childbirth. According to reports, the symptoms of this disease in pregnant women are similar to non-pregnant women. There is no evidence of intrauterine transmission of the virus to the fetus. Also, the presence of the virus in the amniotic fluid, placenta, umbilical cord and throat secretions of the affected infant and breast milk has not been proven so far. Common complications of this disease in pregnant women include miscarriage, preterm delivery, tachycardia and fetal distress, premature rupture of the bladder, cesarean section and death at birth. Covid-19 infection is not an indication for termination of pregnancy. The method of delivery depends on the obstetric indications. In order to prevent the baby from becoming infected after delivery, the mother should wash her hands and use a mask while caring for the baby. Since the only way to prevent this disease is to follow health tips, its management during pregnancy, childbirth and postpartum is vital in maintaining the health of mother and baby.
