Abstract
In the sunset of 2019, the world encountered the beginning of a pandemic due to corona viral infection disease (COVID-19). The rapid spread via respiratory route transmission, absence of vaccine and specific anti virals is the main reason for making the situation worse. Like every aspect COVID-19 was found to be of great concerns in maternal and child health care. The objective of this short communication was to found the effects of COVID-19 in maternal and child health care. It was identified that the clinical manifestations of COVID in pregnant and non-pregnant patients have same manifestations. The mode of delivery even has no significant association with specific infection. The evidence to support inutero peripartum or postpartum transmission is also deficient. Only positive finding observed was the presence of fetal distress. So it was clinched that after birth neonates must be kept in isolation for careful evaluation of any sign of infection and hence itís management. It was concluded that serial follow up investigations like cardiactocography, Dopplerís and amniocentesis should be done to assess fetal wellbeing in the intrauterine period. However, in post partum period both mother and baby should remain in isolation for careful monitoring of any signs of infection and hence timely management.

Key words: COVID-19, Pregnancy, Maternal outcome, Neonatal Outcome, Diagnostic modalities
