Pregnant women with COVID-19 are more likely to be admitted into the intensive care unit.
They are also more likely to be put on ventilators, need life support, and die.

Racial disparities existed too, with pregnant Hispanic women more likely to contract COVID-19.
Black women more likely to experience serious complications, whether or not they were pregnant.
The findings add to past research that COVID can raise the risk of pregnancy complications.
