Many expecting mothers are looking forward to the safe delivery of their little ones in these tough times. The pandemic has created havoc everywhere and pregnant women have a lot of unanswered questions about vaccination against COVID-19. Even lactating mothers are also looking forward to getting vaccinated but they are worried about the safety and health of their children.
 
And now, finally, pregnant women may be given the choice to take any COVID vaccine. The new study in pregnant women who received the Covid-19 vaccine found no evidence of injury in the placenta. The finding adds to growing literature that Covid-19 vaccines are safe in pregnancy. The study was published on Tuesday in the journal Obstetrics & Gynecology.
 
The placenta is like the black box in an airplane. If something goes wrong with a pregnancy, we usually see changes in the placenta that can help us figure out what happened. From what we can tell, the Covid vaccine does not damage the placenta,” corresponding author Dr. Jeffery Goldstein is quoted as saying on the website of Northwestern University, where he is an assistant professor of pathology.
