Can Covid 19 cause problems with pregnancy?

From what experts know so far, most people who get Covid 19 during pregnancy will not have serious problems. But problems can happen if the mother becomes seriously ill.

Pregnant women who get Covid 19 might have an increased risk of preterm labor and birth, when the baby is born before 37 weeks of pregnancy. This seems to be more of a risk in people who get very sick and have pneumonia. Preterm birth can be dangerous, because babies who are born too early can have serious health problems. So it is important to talk to your doctor, nurse or midwife about any symptoms or health concerns you have, even if they don’t appear to be related to Covid 19.
