Introduction: Trauma in pregnancy is a major cause of hospital admission and maternal and fetal mortality. Some of the main complications of trauma in pregnant women are intrauterine death, shock, placental abruption, intraperitoneal hemorrhage, and direct fetal injury. The present study aimed to report some of the cases of trauma in pregnancy and review the previous studies in this regard. Case Presentation: In this case series, we presented the case of four pregnant women with trauma, who referred to various teaching hospitals in Mashhad, Iran. The subjects had blunt abdominal trauma, burn injuries, multiple trauma, and traumatic brain injury. Conclusion: Stabilizing the mother is the primary goal in the management of traumatized, pregnant patients. In many cases, fetal outcome is directly correlated with the rapid, thorough maternal resuscitation. In viable fetuses, fetal monitoring is crucial. On the other hand, due to the high rate of complications during pregnancy, educational interventions should be considered for pregnant women and their families. Furthermore, pregnant women must be aware of risky conditions, such as motorcycle riding and not using seatbelts.
