In the context of a coronavirus pandemic, it is common for expectant mothers to become infected with COVID -19 before giving birth. But what can happen to the baby? There is a high probability that she will be born prematurely or, but something much worse can happen than this, according to Dailymail.
Pregnant women who become infected with Covid before the date of birth of a child are most likely to give birth prematurely, according to the latest research by Scottish scientists.

Doctors say the dangers are low for expectant mothers who have been vaccinated, but they still urge women to get immunized against the virus if they have not already done so.
Expectant mothers who became infected with the new virus within 28 days of giving birth were twice as likely to give birth prematurely.
Expectant mothers are up to four times more likely to have their baby die, according to the latest research by scientists at the University of Edinburgh.
Experts do not have a clear explanation for why expectant mothers who take Covid in the last month of pregnancy are most at risk, but the stress of carrying a baby in their womb can weaken the immune system.

Babies die because mothers do not get vaccinated
Scientists tracked 87,000 expectant mothers in Scotland between December 2020 and October 2021 to analyze their risk of Covid infection.
A similar pattern was observed in premature births, with expectant mothers who contracted the virus shortly before the date of birth having a double chance of giving birth before the 37th week of pregnancy.

All of the babies’ deaths occurred in women who had not been vaccinated against Covid at the time of their infection, the study said.
