For information about COVID-19 infection in pregnancy, there is presently no exact data on symptoms and effects on both mother and her baby.
However, recent information is found that infected pregnancy usually has only mild to moderate flu symptoms, but the infection may increase the risk of premature labor or PROM (Premature rupture of membranes).
The good news is the mother-to-child transmission through the placenta has not been reported yet.
Now ... if any pregnancy feels that you are at risk of infection or you may have a fever, cough, or relevant symptoms.
We recommend you consult with your professional doctors, but, for pregnancies who have no symptoms, a gynecologist may consider more infrequent antenatal care depending on the symptoms of each mother and the doctor's recommendations.
For prevention, there are basic ways like everyone else do.
The keys to infectious disease prevention are such as eating freshly cooked foods, using your own spoon, washing your hands often, and wearing a surgical mask to prevent the infection while you are in risk areas or crowded places.
However, for the sake of pregnancy, staying at home and avoiding meeting people would be the best solution.
