Is the Covid Vaccine SAFE for Pregnant Women and Breastfeeding? (Latest Evidence) | Doctor Explains

We’ll look at the latest scientific data on whether the covid vaccines are safe in pregnancy and breastfeeding. The majority of which is based on the Pfizer and Moderna (mRNA) vaccines. In medicine nothing is 100% safe, we look at what the latest studies show and how confident we can be on the safety of the covid vaccines.

The initial phase 3 trials had tens of thousands of participants but pregnant women were not part of the trial. This left a question mark on the safety of the vaccine, at the time, for pregnant women and breastfeeding women. Since then the vaccine has been rolled out throughout the world. We look at emerging evidence for the US where the CDC has been keeping a register of pregnant women who have been vaccinated and monitoring their progress.

In addition to this, the UK has also monitored 52 thousand pregnant women after they had the vaccines. In total, close to 200,000 pregnant women were followed up and the data showed no concerning facts. So no increased rate of miscarriages. No increased rate of pregnancy complications or neonatal (baby) complications.

We know very well the harmful effects of catching covid, but the latest research shows that pregnant women tend to have a higher chance of becoming unwell and ending up in hospital with it. Which makes it vital that every pregnant woman should consider vaccination. I have put a link to all the studies below for anyone who is interested in exploring more.

When it comes to breastfeeding the medical consensus is much the same. No studies have shown any harmful effects, if fact most have shown that antibodies are passed to the baby once the mother has immunity against covid and this immunity is stronger if you are vaccinated.
