Pregnant women do not appear more likely to contact the infection than the general population. However, pregnancy itself alters the body’s immune system and response to viral infections in general, which can occasionally be related to more severe symptoms and this will be the same for COVID-19.

Pregnant women with heart disease are at the highest risk (congenital or acquired).
