Objectives: Aim of present work was to sum up the clinical presentations, symptoms, and maternal outcomes during pregnancy in women who are confirmed COVID-19 cases. Methods: Science Direct, PubMed, and Google Scholar have been searched for relevant articles published from January 1, 2020, to June 30, 2020, and a systematic review was done. Results: Twenty-five articles were established to be suitable, involved 410 pregnant women. The disease manifestations were comparable clinically to those that occurred in non-pregnant women, while the larger percent of complications (preterm birth, premature membrane rupture, and maternal death) have been stated. Conclusion: The infection with COVID-19 throughout pregnancy has comparable clinical manifestations and intensity of disease to non-pregnant women. It could be linked to significant maternal complications and outcomes.
