Abstract
The SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19) virus led to a pandemic that changed procedures, protocols, and health outcomes of patients of all ages. The effects of COVID-19 on the neonates born to mothers with the virus is an emerging topic in neonatal nursing. COVID-19 has effects on not only the infected mother, but the neonate after birth. It is hypothesized that neonates born to mothers who had COVID-19 during pregnancy have more negative health outcomes than neonates whose mothers did not have COVID-19 during pregnancy. Prevention and early detection are essential in mothers infected with COVID-19 as well as early intervention for the neonates born to these mothers. The purpose of this evidence-based review is to determine the effects of intrapartum COVID-19 on neonates. Nursing practice would benefit from implementation of an assessment standard for pregnant women and neonates whose mothers had COVID-19 during their pregnancy. Identifying COVID-19 in pregnancy can prepare nurses to assess neonates after birth for signs of complications and provide early intervention in order to treat neonatal morbidities and prevent mortality.
