ABSTRACT

Background: The current global pandemic is caused by the severe acute respiratory syndrome – coronavirus 2, otherwise known as COVID-19. Pregnancy has effects on a patient’s physiological functioning; however, the knowledge about the effects of COVID-19 on the pregnant patient and the unborn child is still lacking. Case Presentation: A case of a 36-year-old pregnant woman was presented to a family medicine clinic with decreased fetal movements. This patient had the additional complication of being COVID-19 positive. She was prescribed symptomatic treatment only given the relative mildness of her infection. The patient had a typical flu-like symptoms of COVID-19. However, the complaint of decreased fetal movements on a background of coronavirus infection called for further investigations. Conclusion: This case illustrates the importance of close monitoring and follow up of COVID-19 affected pregnancies. This presents the opportunity to conduct case series for literature enrichment, to compare the treatment plans, and to follow up the complications.
