Objective: This study aimed to define the approach to pregnant women with coronavirus disease-2019 (COVID-19) and to determine the maternal and neonatal consequences of the disease.
Material and Methods: Maternal and neonatal outcomes of COVID-19 pregnant women are illustrated by looking at the following parameters: Real-time reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction test, complete blood count, D-dimer and ferritin concentration, lymphocyte count, aspartate aminotransferase, C-reactive protein, and alanine aminotransferase level, neonatal umbilical blood gas analysis, admission to the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU), and lung computed tomography images.
Results: Forty-three trimester pregnant women with a diagnosis of COVID-19 were included in the study. The most common complaint at admission was cough (50%), and the most common accompanying finding was shortness of breath and fever. The delivery method was 34 patients cesarean section and 6 patients vaginal delivery. Two neonates were admitted to the NICU due to respiratory distress. There were no maternal or infant deaths. The patients were hospitalized for approximately 5 days.
Conclusion: To sum up, our study is a preliminary study and there is a need for studies involving a much larger number of patients in terms of clinical features and follow-up treatment of pregnant women with COVID-19. In this regard, long-term patient follow-up results will be extremely important.
