Aim To compile recommendations and evidence on the practical management of pregnant women with COVID-19 in order to clarify standards of obstetric care in the face of this new disease. Method Scoping review based on literature searches in national and international health science databases (PubMed/Medline, Biblioteca Virtual en Salud, SciELO, Cochrane and CUIDEN) and websites, and additionally by a “snowball” system. MeSH terms were used: “COVID-19”, “Pregnancy”, “Delivery, Obstetric”, “Pregnant Women” and “Maternal”. As limits in the search Spanish and English languages were selected. No limits were established in relation to the year of publication or type of article. Results A total of 49 documents and articles were detected, of which 27 were analyzed, 18 were used, and 9 were discarded because they did not contain practical recommendations. The recommendations were grouped into 10 subjects: Prevention of infection in pregnant women; prevention of infection in health care personnel attending pregnant women; form of presentation and severity in pregnant women; maternal-fetal transmission (vertical and perinatal); maternal-fetal control of the pregnant woman with COVID-19; control of the severely pregnant woman with COVID-19; treatment of the pregnant woman with COVID-19; management and route of termination of labor; neonatal outcomes in women with COVID-19, and breastfeeding. Conclusions Lack of strong evidence to support many of the recommendations for pregnant women with COVID-19, as they are based on previous experience with SARS-CoV and MERS-CoV infections. Further studies are needed to confirm the appropriateness of many of the recommendations and guidelines for action in the specific case of pregnant women and COVID-19.
