Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) has spread rapidly worldwide and emerged as one of the most dangerous types of pneumonia that were first reported in Wuhan, China in December 2019 and according to the World Health Organization (WHO), on March 12, 2020, it was known as pandemic disease. The clinical experience of complex pregnancies infected with other coronaviruses, such as Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS) and Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS), has made pregnant women potentially vulnerable to severe SARS-CoV-2 infection. Physiological changes during pregnancy have a significant effect on the immune system, respiratory system and cardiovascular function and coagulation. These changes may have positive or negative effects on the progression of COVID-19. The effect of SARS-CoV-2 on pregnancy is not yet known, and coordinated and comprehensive studies around the world are needed to determine the effects on implantation, fetal development, delivery, and neonatal health. In addition to the direct effects of the disease, a number of indirect consequences of the pandemic, such as reduced access to reproductive health services, increased mental health pressures, and increased social exclusion may affect maternal health. As the current situation has caused many pregnant patients to express concern about the impact of COVID-19 on their health and that of their infants, the Reproduction and Infertility Research Center of Sarem Women's Hospital, while describing the impact of COVID on pregnancy in this review article, at the end of the article, based on the recommendations of the World Health Organization, it has prepared a guideline that answers frequently asked questions about pregnancy and COVID-19.
