Spontaneous Miscarriages, Stillbirths After COVID-19

Thirty-four cases of pregnant women experiencing spontaneous miscarriages or stillbirths
after receiving a COVID-19 vaccine have been submitted to the Vaccine Adverse Event
Reporting System (VAERS).


VAERS is a passive reporting system that allows people to submit a report of an adverse
event after vaccination and is run by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the
Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Research funded by the CDC has
shown that fewer than 1 percent of reactions from vaccinations are being reported on
VAERS.


Reports made to VAERS do not necessarily mean that a vaccine may have caused the
event or reaction. Miscarriages are labeled as spontaneous abortions or abortions in the
reporting system.


Many cases of spontaneous miscarriages occurred in the first trimester, or the first 12
weeks of the pregnancy, with 25 occurrences after being immunized with a Pfizer-
BioNTech vaccine. While the four cases of stillborns occurred in either the second (weeks
13-27) or third trimester (weeks 28-40).


According to Verywell Health, an online resource on health-related issues: “Research
suggests that between 10% and 20% of women with a medically confirmed pregnancy will
end in miscarriage. Eighty percent of these will occur during the first trimester.”


Dr. Shelley Cole, MD, an OB-GYN and a member of America’s Frontline Doctors, says it’s
concerning that a vaccine still in an experimental phase is being recommended to
pregnant and lactating women and that science is no longer protecting them.


“As an obstetrician-gynecologist, it is a concern,” Cole told The Epoch Times. “We’re
[now] throwing science and the scientific medicine method out the window and
jeopardizing pregnancies and future pregnancies.”


“It concerns me that the CDC says that there are no studies, but it’s okay to get it and you
don’t even need to discuss it with your doctor,” Cole added. “I mean this is the opposite of
everything that the scientific models and methods, and standard of care has been for a
century.”


In its guidance on “Vaccination Considerations for People who are Pregnant or
Breastfeeding,” the CDC says that pregnant or lactating women who are “part of a group
recommended to receive COVID-19 vaccine, such as healthcare personnel, may choose to
be vaccinated” and that they are not required to discuss with their doctor “prior to
vaccination” even though there is limited evidence “available on the safety of COVID-19
vaccines” in this group.


There is also no safety data on the “effects of mRNA vaccines on the breastfed infant or
on mild production/excretion,” yet the vaccine is “not thought to be a risk to the
breastfeeding infant.”
