Pregnant Women Passes COVID Fighting antibodies to Babies

Pregnant Women, who receive COVID-19 vaccines during the pregnancy pass a high level of antibodies to fight against coronavirus in their children.

As per the new study, the researchers found a high level of antibodies in newborns whose mothers has received vaccination during pregnancy. The study was published by the American Journal of Obstetrics & Gynecology—Maternal-Fetal Medicine.

The study looked into the 36 children and found all of them had antibodies when they were born. These children’s mothers were vaccinated with the Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna mRNA COVID-19 dose during the pregnancy.

The data also shows that the mother who had been vaccinated 13 weeks prior to the delivery had passed the higher level of antibodies compared to the mother who had been vaccinated more than 20 weeks prior to the delivery.

But the research still believes that they need more data to conclude if there is really a correspondence between the programing of vaccines and children’s antibody level.

However, it is not clear yet how long newborn children were sheltered from coronavirus contamination, or how long the effectiveness of antibodies last. Although, the researchers recommended that the coronavirus antibodies may provide a shield to the kids during the first four weeks or might be longer when they are most susceptible.

The team of researchers also marked that their discoveries will add to a rising list of the most important reason why Pregnant Women should be advise to take the coronavirus vaccine during the pregnancy
