Abstract: Introduction: Pregnant women may be more susceptible to COVID-19 due to their increased vulnerability to respiratory infection like severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) and Middle East respiratory syndrome (MERS). Most Covid-19 positive pregnant women (more than 80%) are asymptomatic. The present study was conducted to assess maternal and perinatal outcome in women who suffered COVID-19 [SARS Cov-2]. Materials and method: All antenatal and postnatal admitted pregnant women who tested covid positive were included in the study. Out of 250 covid positive pregnant women 50 presented in antenatal period and were discharged after successful treatment of COVID-19 and delivered elsewhere; In remaining 200 cases 13 had abortion, 83 delivered by caesarean section and 104 had vaginal delivery. Their Maternal and Perinatal outcome were studied. Data collected was analysed using SPSS statistical version 20.0. Results: The mean age of study subjects was 24.13?6.11yrs. Majority belonged to multigravida group (52.8%) whereas 47.2% cases were primigravida.80.0% females tested positive for infection in postpartum period and the most common symptom was fever.52% cases delivered vaginally, 41.5% by cesarean section and 6.5% had abortion (gestational age ? 20 weeks).42% had medical complications, 60% had obstetric complications and 35.82% had no complications. Out of 187 deliveries there were 178 (95.18%) live births and 9 (4.81%) still births/ IUFD.26.2% had birth weight ? 3kg and preterm delivery rate was 17.11%.
