virus; 3rd year of pandemic, emerging data indicates increased risk linked to COVID infection during pregnancy, including pre-eclampsia, intrauterine growth restriction, preterm birth, stillbirth etc.
We’re experiencing the fall out from the Spike Protein Bomb. Our mothers are SICK! According to the experts, the culprit is the SARS-CoV-2 virus.
As the COVID-19 pandemic continues into its third year, emerging data indicates increased risks associated with SARS-CoV-2 infection during pregnancy, including pre-eclampsia, intrauterine growth restriction, preterm birth, stillbirth, and risk of developmental defects in neonates.
It’s interesting how the symptoms are all blamed on the virus and not the vaccine. The article continues.
There is growing evidence that SARS-CoV-2 infections also pose a higher risk of severe illness in pregnant individuals, and risks to this population can, unfortunately, be overlooked. In the early months of the COVID-19 pandemic, studies from New York City and China suggested that the risk for severe disease in pregnant individuals was not significantly greater than in nonpregnant individuals. 17, 18, 19

Let’s look at the 3 references.

COVID-19 infection during pregnancy probably has a clinical presentation and severity resembling that in non-pregnant adults. It is probably not associated with poor maternal or perinatal outcomes.
This links to an article written in 3/17/2020
Here is the abstract:
We present 2 cases of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19)–associated severe respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) infection during the third trimester of pregnancy. Both mothers and newborns had excellent outcomes. We failed to identify SARS-CoV-2 in all of the products of conception and the newborns. This report provided evidence of low risk of intrauterine infection by vertical transmission of SARS-CoV-2.
This article references this article
Clinical records were retrospectively reviewed for 116 pregnant women with coronavirus disease 2019 pneumonia from 25 hospitals in China between January 20, 2020, and March 24, 2020. Evidence of vertical transmission was assessed by testing for severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 in amniotic fluid, cord blood, and neonatal pharyngeal swab samples.
Interesting in China samples of amniotic fluid, cord blood and neonatal pharyngeal swab samples were saved for future analysis allowing for “retrospective review”…
Severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 infection during pregnancy is not associated with an increased risk of spontaneous abortion and spontaneous preterm birth. There is no evidence of vertical transmission of severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 infection when the infection manifests during the third trimester of pregnancy.
Back to the original article funded by the NIH and the bullet point conclusions:
Pregnant individuals are at greater risk of SARS-CoV-2 infection that could lead to adverse pregnancy outcomes.
Vertical transmission of SARS-CoV-2 appears to be rare based upon all the reports to date, but other risks to fetal health remain.
SARS-CoV-2 entry into placental cells could be governed by alternate endocytic pathways other than ACE2 and TMPRSS2.
SARS-CoV-2 presence in the placenta could lead to various histopathological changes.
SARS-CoV-2 accessory proteins play a major role in antagonizing host immune responses.
The current COVID-19 vaccines are encouraged and declared safe by the US Food and Drug Administration for use in pregnant individuals to reduce the serious pregnancy related complications due to SARS-CoV-2 infection.
Words like, “greater, appear, and could” are not very scientific!
Another illustration of this point, the word “SEEM” from their conclusion paragraph below:
Although current vaccines against COVID-19 seem to be safe and effective during pregnancy, the emerging new variants of SARS-CoV-2 with higher transmissibility and better immune escape abilities raise new questions about effectiveness.
