Introduction: With the outbreak of the novel coronavirus disease (Covid-19), some of the population groups are more vulnerable than others. Among these groups, one can name pregnant women who should be given particular attention in the studies and presentation of health and treatment protocols. This study aimed to overview the findings related to Covid-19 and health recommendations during pregnancy. Materials and Methods: This review included studies investigating different types of coronaviruses indexed in databases, such as SID, Magiran, PubMed, Scholar, science direct, Embase, and Scopus, as well as clinical protocols and reports of reputable health organizations during 2000 to 2020. The search terms were "Pregnancy", "Coronavirus", "novel Coronavirus", "Covid 19", "Acute Respiratory Syndrome", "Breastfeeding" and "Infants". Finally, 23 studies met the requirements and reviewed in this study. Results: This study investigated the findings related to the effects of coronavirus during pregnancy on pregnant women and their fetuses, disease diagnosis methods, care protocols in pregnant women, and postpartum care. The data in this review are based on the studies, updated protocols, and valid statistics. Conclusion: Due to the global prevalence of this virus, protocols and health care applied to other people should be also applied to pregnant women. Moreover, preventive measures should be taught and implemented at the community level concerning pregnant women, and monitoring systems should be considered for infected and non-infected pregnant women so that they can be specifically monitored and followed up during pregnancy.
