Objective: To find the prevalence and the outcomes of pregnant women with COVID-19 infection.
Method: This was a cross-sectional study. The subjects were selected by total sampling. All pregnant women with COVID-19 infection and without COVID-19 infection who gave birth at Harapan Mulia Hospital from June 1, 2020 to August 31, 2021 with complete medical record data were recruited.
Results: The average age of the patients with COVID-19 was 29.10 ± 7.325 years and the average age of the patients without COVID-19 was 29.24 ± 7.021 years. The average gestational age of pregnant women with COVID-19 was 37.52 ± 1.978 weeks and without COVID-19 was 38.14 ± 1.718 weeks. From the results of the statistical test of maternal outcomes, it was obtained that the P value for the length of hospitalization and type of treatment room after delivery was < 0.05, while the other variables were >0.05. For perinatal outcome analysis, from the results of statistical tests, it was obtained that P values for all variables were >0.05.
Conclusion: There are differences in maternal outcomes and no differences in perinatal outcomes between pregnant women with COVID-19 and pregnant women without COVID-19 infection.
