Dear Editor,

The Coronavirus Infection (COVID-19) is a pandemic disease which the first case of this infection was found in China, Wuhan, Hubei Province.[1] Pneumonia is a very sever complication seen in some special population including elderly people and pregnant women, due to the suppression of immunity system.[1]

In the world We have 200 million pregnant women throughout the world that need special attention.[2] The results of some assessments such as: amniotic fluid, cord blood, neonatal throat swab, and breast milk samples revealed that evidences of miscarriage and vertical transmission were not observed. It is believed that some effects including premature rupture of membranes, preterm labor, and fetal distress in the third trimester of pregnancy are not common[3]

Centers for Disease and Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends that “wearing a mask” is the best approach to control the spreading of COVID-19.[4] In pregnant women with suspected or confirmed COVID-19, it is advised that we postpone the time of delivery until the test result is negative. Monitoring of mother and fetus and planning for delivery is the best approach to manage pregnant women with COVID-19. The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) recommend that the best place for the delivery is hospital and this is the case on pregnant women with COVID-19.[5] Due to the chain of the infection, some mothers fear to go to the hospital. In general, any evidence of vertical transmission from mother to fetus and preterm labor is not observed due to COVID-19.[4]
