Pregnant women with Covid-19 do not get sicker than the wider population, according to a Singapore study published.

The small study of 16 women also found no evidence of virus transmission between mother and baby. The study uncovered this aspect which was not known to people. The WHO says pregnant women can be badly affected by some respiratory infections, and that it is not known whether mothers with Covid-19 can pass the virus to their babies during pregnancy or delivery.

The study said most participants were mildly infected, while more severe reactions. None of the women died and all made a full recovery. Two women lost their babies, which was because of severe virus complications. Moreover, five women had delivered by the time the study was published. Meanwhile, all their babies had antibodies without having been infected by the virus, although the researchers said it is not yet clear what level of protection this may offer.

Further monitoring was required to see if the antibodies get affected by the growth of the baby or not. The number of antibodies in the babies varied and was higher among those whose mothers had been infected nearer to the time of delivery, the researchers added.
