Aims: The recent coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) outbreak became a global health concern in 2020 and the effect this novel coronavirus disease is still unclear on pregnant women. The present systematic review aimed to study the relationship between COVID-19 in pregnant women and development of preterm birth.
Instrument & Methods: A systematic search of the published literature in PubMed, Scopus, and Google scholar was performed on every article addressing pregnant women regardless of the age or gestational age who were confirmed or suspected case of COVID-19 who gave birth and developed any type of neonatal adverse outcomes were included.
Findings: Seventeen studies entered the present systematic review from America, Europe, and Asia. A total number of 6251 deliveries from COVID-19 women were evaluated by these studies before excluding the possible studies with overlapping populations. The most common neonatal complication was preterm labor (11.9%). Other complications reported in more than one study included stillbirth (0.7%), PROM (12%), SGA (4%), and PPROM (5.4%). Moreover, the overall NICU admission was 173 neonates (25.2%).
Conclusion: Without considering the COVID-19 severity in pregnant women, the rate of preterm delivery as the most common neonatal complication is approximately 12% of live births which slightly greater than the previously reported global preterm rate in 2020.
Keywords: preterm birth, COVID-19, pregnancy
