Symptoms typically appear between 2 and 14 days after exposure to the new coronavirus. Data from people who acquired COVID-19 in China found a median incubation period of 4 days. The overall risk of COVID-19 to pregnant women is low. However, pregnant women who have COVID-19 appear more likely to develop respiratory complications requiring intensive care than women who aren’t pregnant, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Pregnant women are also more likely to be placed on a ventilator. But a fever in early pregnancy, from COVID-19 or any other cause, can raise the chances of birth defects. And severe lung illnesses late in your pregnancy can make you more likely to deliver your. They include fever, cough, and shortness of breath, chills, muscle pain, sore throat, and the loss of taste or smell.

According to the CDC, symptoms can appear in as few as two days or as long as 14 days after exposure to the virus. Because of this heightened risk, scientists have been closely monitoring pregnancy outcomes in various coronavirus studies. So far, few studies have indicated a significant risk for pregnant women.

COVID-19 and pregnancy considerations. Based on what we know at this time, pregnant people might be at increased risk for severe illness from COVID-19 compared to non-pregnant people. Additionally, there may be an increased risk of adverse pregnancy outcomes, such as preterm birth, among pregnant people with COVID-19. Tracking data on COVID-19 during pregnancy can protect pregnant women and their babies.

An MMWR study suggests that pregnant women with COVID-19 are more likely to be hospitalized and are at increased risk for intensive care unit (ICU) admission and receipt of mechanical ventilation than nonpregnant women. Risk of death is similar for both groups. But much remains unknown. Revisions were made on July 17, 2020 to reflect recent data supporting increased risk of severe COVID-19 among individuals with cancer. The listed underlying medical conditions in children were also revised to indicate that these conditions might increase risk to better reflect the quality of available data currently.

We are learning more about COVID-19 every day, and as new information. There’s no specific treatment for COVID-19. People who get a mild case need care to ease their symptoms, like rest, fluids, and fever control.

“But we do know that high fevers in pregnancy, especially in the first trimester, can raise the risk of birth defects. That is why we encourage our patients to protect themselves from any illness that causes fever, including the flu.” While there’s not yet a vaccine or treatment for COVID-19, expectant mothers can still be.
