Pregnant and recently pregnant women who are diagnosed with Covid-19 in the hospital appear to be less likely to have symptoms of fever and muscle pain but more likely to be admitted to the intensive care unit, according to a new paper published in the BMJ medical journal on Tuesday. The study also found pregnant women with Covid-19 are at increased risk of delivering preterm, but preterm birth rates were not high.

How pregnant women and their unborn children are affected by Covid - 19 is a persistent, wide-ranging question. Typically, researchers will conduct systematic reviews integrating multiple studies to land on a consensus, but in the case of Covid scientists have been inundated with data that often become

"We found that one in 10 pregnant or recently pregnant women who are attending or admitted to hospital for any reason are diagnosed as having suspected or confirmed Covid-19, although the rates vary," the researchers -- from various institutions in Europe and China -- wrote in the paper.

The researchers reviewed 77 studies on Covid-19 in pregnant and recently pregnant women, published from December 1 and June 26.

Collectively, those studies included data on 13,118 pregnant and recently pregnant women with Covid-19, and 83,486 non-pregnant women of reproductive age who also had Covid-19.

There Are No Pregnant Women in Coronavirus Vaccine Trials. Why?

  There Are No Pregnant Women in Coronavirus Vaccine Trials. Why? It might be standard practice, but there are implications.But not everyone has the opportunity to take part in these trials. Pregnant women are among those populations excluded because new drugs have a unique potential to harm mom and her fetus and including pregnant women in studies can interfere with study results. The exclusion is standard practice for new vaccines. Not everyone is happy. There are major downsides to this routine exclusion — ones that are particularly pressing with COVID-19.

Because the study included only pregnant women in New York City, the results may not apply to the Pregnant women are known to be at increased risk for certain infections, such as the flu, but (With more than 200,000 confirmed cases of COVID - 19 , New York has by far the highest number of

Studies have not been conclusive about Covid - 19 risk to pregnant women . Review of papers found a 62% rise in need for intensive care in hospital 'It is important that pregnant women are aware that the absolute risks to their health from coronavirus are low,' he said. 'This study highlights a possible

"The Covid-19 related symptoms of fever and myalgia (muscle ache) manifest less often in pregnant and recently pregnant women than in nonpregnant women of reproductive age," the researchers wrote.

"Pregnant or recently pregnant women with Covid-19 seem to be at increased risk of requiring admission to an intensive care unit or invasive ventilation."

Older women, women who are heavier and women with conditions such as diabetes, kidney disease or other chronic conditions may also have a higher risk of severe disease, they said.

The researchers also found in those studies that pregnant women with Covid-19 are at increased risk of delivering preterm and their babies being admitted to the neonatal unit, although overall rates of spontaneous preterm births were not high. Also, stillbirth and neonatal death rates were low, the researchers found.

The studies used in the review primarily reported on pregnant women who required visits to the hospital and not many studies reported outcomes by trimester.

The virus that causes COVID - 19 is too new to say for sure whether millions of pregnant women face additional threats to their unborn babies.

"Reviews such as this can only be as good as the studies they summarize and it is important to note that a high proportion of the included studies have a substantial risk of bias," Dr. Marian Knight, professor of maternal and child population health at Britain's University of Oxford, said in a statement distributed by the UK-based Science Media Center on Tuesday.

"It is also important to recognize that, whilst this review reports high preterm birth rates, a number of women affected by COVID-19 in pregnancy are still pregnant, and thus are not included in the study data. This may make preterm birth rates appear artificially high," Knight said. "Nevertheless, some pregnant women affected by COVID-19 may have a subsequent preterm birth and preventing infection remains essential."

Dr. Edward Morris, president of the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, said in another statement on Tuesday that the new paper provides "a welcome and comprehensive synthesis of the available research" on Covid-19 in pregnancy.

"While overall risks to pregnant women from coronavirus are low, the findings of this study highlight the particular risks to pregnant women," Morris said. "Pregnant women are included in the list of people at moderate risk as a precaution and pregnant women should therefore continue to follow the latest government guidance on social distancing and avoiding anyone with symptoms suggestive of coronavirus."
