The new coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2) originated in China and causes pneumonia and respiratory, gastrointestinal, and many other symptoms. The risk of adverse pregnancy outcomes increases in pregnant women infected with the respiratory virus. The purpose of this systematic review was to review maternal outcomes and neonatal status in infected mothers. Searches in PubMed, Elsevier, and Google Scholar were conducted to identify related articles from 2019 to 2020. The search terms "Corona Virus 2019", "Covid 19", and "Pregnancy" were used. All articles were reviewed and the extracted data were categorized. A search of PubMed, Google Scholar, Elsevier and other databases revealed 87, 7280, and 12 results, respectively. Finally, 20 articles were included in the study. The number of women in each article was 1 to 16 (total: 78). All women were in the third trimester of pregnancy except for 2 who were less than 28 weeks pregnant. The most common clinical symptoms were fever, cough, and sore throat. The most common maternal outcome was intrauterine distress, PROM, and preterm delivery. Most mothers give birth by cesarean section. The most common complications of preterm infants were fetal distress, low birth weight, and bacterial pneumonia. In this systematic review, there is some evidence that Covid 19 disease has negative consequences for both mother and fetus during pregnancy
