Pfizer, Moderna & BioNTech vaccines pass high antibodies to fetuses inside the womb: Study

Pregnant women injected with mRNA vaccines, manufactured by Pfizer, Moderna and BioNTech pass high levels of antibodies to their babies, says a new study.

According to a new study, pregnant women who have received the mRNA covid jab can pass high levels of antibodies to their babies. Pfizer, BioNTech and Moderna are the mRNA vaccines that do not use the live virus that causes Covid-19.

The study published in the American Journal of Obstetrics & Gynecology Maternal Fetal Medicine found that 36 newborns tested at birth all had antibodies to protect against Covid-19 after their mothers were vaccinated with mRNA shots. This study is the first to measure antibody levels in umbilical cord blood.

The data could help encourage more women to get vaccinated during their pregnancies. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in the USA, only 30% of pregnant women ages 18 to 49 are vaccinated.

The researchers pushed out this data early, despite studying a small sample size, because it's a unique finding that can encourage skeptical mothers to take the shot.
