Since coronavirus vaccines were developed and authorized for emergency usage, doctors and healthcare professionals speculated about their effect on pregnant women. Scientists and researchers knew a little about the impact of COVID-19 vaccines on pregnant women and their babies.
Due to this, when the vaccination drives started in several countries pregnant women were not authorized to get vaccinated until such a study sheds a light on the vaccines’ safety. Since then, scientists have been steadily accumulating evidence that shows coronavirus vaccines are safe and effective in pregnant women.
The New York Times reported the study published in JAMA that shows Moderna and Pfizer-Biotech are the two vaccines that produce better immune responses among pregnant and lactating women. Moreover, the study also found that vaccinated women can also pass antibodies to their babies through bloodstreams and breast milk.
Another study published in the journal Obstetrics & Gynecology on Thursday found no evidence of Pfizer or Moderna vaccines damaging the placenta during pregnancy.
COVID-19 has posed severe risks and threats in pregnant women. However, according to Dr. Emily S. Miller, maternal-fetal medicinal expert, and co-author of the placenta study, these results have empowered us to take a step to protect pregnant women through the COVID-19 vaccine.
