 The study is the second out of China within the last month to confirm that mothers infected with coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) during pregnancy did not infect their babies.

Chinese researchers have revealed that viral infection is not transmittable from pregnant mothers to newborns at birth. The study, published in the journal Frontiers in Pediatrics, is the second out of China within the last month to confirm that mothers infected with coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) during pregnancy did not infect their babies.

All four mothers in the current study, which focused on the health of the newborns, gave birth at Wuhan’s Union Hospital in China while infected. Wuhan in Hubei Province is believed to be the epicentre of the current outbreak.

According to the researcher at Huazhong University of Science and Technology, none of the infants developed any serious symptoms associated with COVID-19 such as fever or cough, though all were initially isolated in neonatal intensive care units and fed formula.

“It’s impossible to conclude whether there’s a connection between these other medical issues and COVID-19. “We are not sure the rash was due to the mother’s COVID-19 infection,” said study co-author Dr. Yalan Liu from Huazhong University of Science and Technology. In the previous retrospective study on nine pregnant mothers infected with COVID-19, researchers also found no evidence that the viral infection can pass to the child.

The authors said further investigations into other aspects of potential COVID-19 infection in newborns and children are needed.

Opinion of Majestic Garbh Sanskar:

At the present time there is no specific medicine or vaccine has been found for COVID-19. Do not panic but be careful. Pregnant women should spend most of her time in joy and positivity. Going in to the crowded place should be avoided.

Different activities like Garbhsamvad (talk to the unborn ), affirmative inputs, prayers, moral stories, biography, 5 sense development activities, scripture reading, brain activities etc.. should be practiced on daily basis. Staying positive and joyful will help to boost the immunity, and turn these times of compulsion into an opportunity. The best life style for a pregnant woman to produce baby with excellent qualities is known as GarbhSanskar.

Prayers for your happy, healthy and stress free pregnancy.
