This review of literature suggest that the COVID-19 pandemic has adverse outcomes on maternal physical and psychological health, specially during the third trimester of pregnancy, birth and postpartum.

The birthing and postpartum parents should be supported by their networks and healthcare providers. The strategies for facilitating support to pregnant mothers and families should be considered by health care managers.
