The COVID-19 mRNA vaccine and pregnant or breastfeeding women

Updated: Mar 23



The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists and the Society of Maternal-Fetal Medicine published statements advocating for ACCESS to the vaccine for pregnant and breastfeeding mothers.


These statements support the woman’s right to CHOOSE whether to take this vaccine. These statements advocate against authorities DENYING women access. The statements DO NOT write that the panel RECOMMENDS the vaccine to this special group nor that they vouch for the safety of the vaccine concerning the exposed unborn and born children of pregnant and/or breastfeeding women who receive this vaccine. Words matter! Read these statements very closely.
