The first study showed that pregnant women with symptoms of “Covid-19” have a higher rate of emergency complications, compared to those who tested positive but did not show any symptoms.
The research was part of a presentation to the Annual Meeting of Anesthesiology 2021 over the weekend.
And mothers who felt symptoms of corona were more likely to develop emergency complications, which pose a threat to the life of the child.
More babies were born with a complicated situation, there was a greater chance of fetal movement decline, and some had too little amniotic fluid.
The study also found that babies born to mothers with symptoms of coronavirus are more likely to need oxygen support and more likely to be admitted to the intensive care unit.
“Coronavirus has severe systemic effects on the body, especially in people who suffer from its symptoms,” said Christine Lin, a medical student at the University of Texas Medical Branch in Galveston, Texas, who participated in the study.
“It is possible that these effects may be amplified in expectant mothers, who have increased oxygen requirements.”
There is also the possibility of doctors taking care of patients who show symptoms of corona, she said, with women proactively recommending caesarean sections.
Dr. Jill Moore, a reproductive immunologist who was not involved in the study but reviewed the work, explained that the problems could also be related to the chronic inflammation caused by “Covid-19”.
“Inflammation is very dangerous for both the mother and the development of the fetus,” he added. “Chronic inflammation is now a battle for the survival of the mother and fetus, and in every fight they pay a price… We need to do everything we can to prevent chronic inflammation.”
The other study was reviewed and published Sunday in the journal Maternal-Fetal & Neonatal Medicine. This research looked at the impact of COVID-19 on women during the third trimester of their pregnancy.
Scientists looked at the records of more than 2,400 women in one hospital in Israel between March and September of last year, and noted significant health differences between women infected with “Covid-19” and women who did not have it.
Among patients infected with the coronavirus, 67% were asymptomatic.
Dr. Elior Eliasi of Mayanei Hayeshua Medical Center and colleagues found that women with symptoms of corona may face a greater problem.
There were higher rates of gestational diabetes, lower white blood cell counts, and heavy bleeding during childbirth. Their children also suffered from breathing problems.
The increased risk of problems was about 20% higher for women with symptoms of COVID-19, and 14% higher for people with COVID-19 without symptoms.
Contrary to other research, this study did not find that women with symptoms of corona are more likely to give birth early.
Of course, there are some limitations to the study because it looked at a group of women in one hospital, so its results may not hold true for all pregnant women.
These new studies add to a growing body of evidence that coronavirus, especially symptomatic, poses a real threat to pregnant people.
Dr. Dennis Jamieson, who did not work on the study, explained that these studies provide more evidence that the risks of the epidemic far outweigh the risks for pregnant women who get vaccinated.
According to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, only a third of pregnant women are fully vaccinated against the “Covid-19” epidemic.
Vaccines can protect pregnant women from infection with “Covid-19”.
He recalls that the protection that comes from the vaccine is also transmitted to the newborn.
“I know that pregnant women can be reluctant to take medications or receive vaccinations during pregnancy and they really want to do everything they can to protect their children, and make sacrifices in pregnancies, but I think that has to be weighed against the risks of not getting vaccinated,” Jamieson said. .
“It is important that all people are vaccinated, but in particular, pregnant women are vaccinated in order to protect themselves and their children,” he added.
