Can COVID19 Be Transmitted From The Mother To Her The Unborn Baby During Pregnancy And Delivery?

  0  

Unfortunately, it’s still too early to draw many solid conclusions about how the novel coronavirus affects pregnant women and their babies. But, physicians and researchers continue to observe and collect anecdotal evidence – and in the meantime, hospitals are advised to put in protections like limiting visitor policies out of an abundance of caution.

So far there hasn't been any indications that COVID-19 can be transmitted to an unborn baby. After birth, we know that transmission is possible if there’s exposure to a COVID-19-positive caregiver, including the mother.
