Material and Method: To answer the health-related field questions, systematic literature review papers are published, that during pregnancy and neonatal transmission what are the effects of covid- 19. Pregnant women with counts 755 and neonates having counts 598 are observed. Having C- section women are almost above half of the total, for SARS 398 (82%) infants are tested and infants that results positive are 9 (2%). Vertical transmission has no evidence because of the care provided during and after pregnancy, there is a shortage of biological testing, and knowledge gaps are more.

Conclusion: the clinical conditions of pregnant women infected with SARS- CoV-2 cannot be ruled out, whether the occurrence of respiratory disease, cardiac rhythm disturbances, acid-base imbalances, the infection is associated with comorbidities or not. So before and after the delivery of the baby, testing should be recommended.
