This study evaluated data on pregnant and lactating women diagnosed with acute Ebola virus disease or following recovery. 52 studies were assessed with results showing that nearly all women infected with Ebola virus had adverse pregnancy outcomes. Risk of transmission of Ebola virus from mother-to-child is significant and is likely related to exposure to pregnancy-related fluids and breastmilk.
