Pregnant women are considered a vulnerable group due to the unique immunological changes that take place during pregnancy2. It is important to understand the impact of SARS-CoV-2 on pregnant women and foetuses, in order to produce clinical guidelines for obstetric and neonatal management. In recent months, there has been a rise in research into the impact of SARS-CoV-2 infection on pregnancy. This essay aims to explore this emerging data and understand the impact of SARS-CoV-2 on pregnancy, including looking at specific sub-populations, such as women from Black and Minority Ethnic (BAME) backgrounds. In addition, it will explore the data surrounding whether vertical transmission from mother to baby is possible. This is an area of considerable controversy.
