Covid-19, Pregnancy, Bibliometrix program, Coronavirus, Fetus


This study aims to offer a comprehensive analysis of the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on pregnant women, utilizing the Bibliometrix Program to examine a wide array of information and insights. By focusing on English-language articles indexed in "SCI_EXPANDED or SSCI or ESCI" within the Web of Science database, we conducted bibliometric analysis using the science mapping method. Our findings reveal that from 2020 to 2022, a total of 1789 articles pertaining to the prognosis of pregnant women during the Covid-19 period were published across 594 journals in our field of study, with an annual growth rate of 44.01%. The analysis underscores the global significance of this issue and the substantial research efforts dedicated to understanding its complexities. Additionally, this study emphasizes the importance of utilizing various analysis programs beyond Bibliometrix to gain diverse perspectives on the subject. Ultimately, our findings aim to enrich the knowledge base for researchers investigating the intersection of Covid-19 and pregnancy, offering valuable insights into the landscape of existing research and fostering a deeper understanding of this critical area of study.
