Abstract: SARS-CoV-2 infection in pregnancy and its adverse outcome on the mother as well on the fetus is emerging as an important concern, but knowledge about the prognosis is limited. In our prospective observational study total of 56 pregnant women admitted in the isolation ward of our institution were included. All women were presented with common symptoms like fever, tiredness, headache, sore throat, and cough. Three women diagnosed SARS-CoV-2/COVID-19 positive by Reverse Transcription Polymerase Chain Reaction (RTPCR) examination of the nasopharyngeal swab. All three neonates were tested negative for SARS-CoV-2 infection. The three mothers also recovered with routine care and returned home after 7 days with advice for a safe home for further 7 days. SARS-CoV-2 infection in pregnancy mostly appears in the later part of pregnancy and management is almost like the general population. There is no increased risk of severe disease during pregnancy. Neonates are mostly protected from disease transmission due to immune modulation during pregnancy.
