Through this case, we present the thought process, team-based strategy and sequel of managing a complex, critically ill pregnant with ARDS and COVID-19 pneumonia. This case also confirms the feasibility of using convalescent plasma and ECMO during early postnatal period in acutely ill parturient with respiratory failure.
