Objective: To evaluate the exposure of the mother-baby binomial to complications in sex workers. Methods: This is an integrative literature review that followed a 6-phase system. The research took place in the Virtual Health Library in the following databases: Nursing Database (BDENF- Nursing), Online Medical Literature Analysis and Recovery System (Medline), Latin American Literature of Health Sciences (LiLACS), Spanish Bibliographic Index of Health Sciences (IBECS-ES), National Center for Biotechnological Information (NCBI), SAGE Journals with the descriptors: sex workers and sexually transmitted infections, prostitution and sexually transmitted infections, prostitution and vulnerability, from March to April 2019; 105 articles were identified and were submitted to the exclusion and inclusion criteria, and 25 publications were obtained for the sample. Results: Based on the analysis of the articles the following categories were determined: sexually transmitted infections (STIs), violence and illicit or licit drugs are linked. Conclusion: Despite the limitation of sampling, the study allowed us to evaluate that the mother-baby binomial is vulnerable to several complications such as spontaneous abortion, growth restriction, premature labor, fetal and/or maternal death, prematurity, physical and behavioral abnormalities of mother and baby, and placental detachment, due to suffered violence, acquired sexually transmitted infections and used substances.
