At this time everyone is scared because of the coronavirus. In pregnancy, there are some changes in women’s immune system. During this time, the immunity also becomes slightly weaker and there is an increased risk of respiratory infections. In such a situation, it is important to know how coronavirus will affect the health of the mother and baby.
At this time if you are pregnant then you will have many questions about it. Here you will find answers to some questions about the effect of the coronavirus in pregnancy.
Symptoms of corona in pregnancy
If you have been exposed to coronavirus in pregnancy, you may have fever and persistent cough like the rest of the people. It is reported that most women experience only mild or common symptoms of a cold or flu. Some may experience loose motions or difficulty in breathing. There is no evidence that pregnant women who have this infection have a higher risk of showing severe symptoms than others.
