Risks to the pregnancy and to the baby

Much is still unknown about the risks of COVID-19 to the pregnancy and to the baby.

  • Mother-to-child transmission of COVID-19 during pregnancy is unlikely, but after birth a newborn can be infected after exposure to an infected person, including the baby’s mother or other caregivers.
  • Based on limited published reports, a very small number of babies have tested positive for the virus shortly after birth. However, it is unknown if these babies got the virus before, during, or after birth.
  • There have been a small number of reported problems, such as preterm birth, in babies born to mothers who tested positive for COVID-19 late in their pregnancy. However, we do not know if these problems were related to the virus.

Prenatal care during the COVID-19 outbreak

It is important to take care of yourself and your baby during pregnancy, and this includes prenatal care.

  • Ask if your doctor’s office, clinic, or hospital has steps in place to separate healthy patients from those who might be sick.
  • Some doctor’s offices might choose to cancel or postpone some visits. Others may switch certain appointments to telemedicine visits, which are appointments through the phone or over the internet. These decisions will be based on the circumstances in your community, as well as your individual care plan.
  • Call your healthcare provider if you have an urgent medical question.
  • In case of emergency, call 911 or go to your local emergency department. If possible, call the emergency department to explain you are pregnant and have an emergency. They should have an infection prevention plan to protect you from getting COVID-19 if you need emergency care. Do not delay getting emergency care because of COVID-19.
