Answer

Pregnant patients with malaria are at increased risk of morbidity and mortality. [44] In addition, nonimmune mothers and immune primigravidas may be at an increased risk of low birth weight, fetal loss, and prematurity. Consult an expert in malaria to determine the safest and most effective prophylaxis or treatment in a pregnant woman.
