"It's a psychological fact. Covid will kill your baby." So test this new vaccine! 2020
My oldest daughter is 25. My youngest is almost 20. During my three pregnancies, women were outright shamed for having a sip of champagne at a wedding, a taste of coffee at breakfast, a bite of a tuna sandwich at lunch, a puff of a cigarette any time, a tablet of Tylenol for a headache, a spoonful of any medicine whether OTC or Rx. Vaccines, let lone experimental vaccines, were never, ever mentioned to me in 27 months of pregnancy (3 kids, I'm not an elephant.)

The Vaccine Reaction
ACOG Says Pregnant Women, Breastfeeding Moms Should Be Test Subjects in COVID-19 Vaccine Trials and Be Among the First to Get Vaccinated
In its June 24 statement, the ACOG also stated:
In light of this new information from the CDC regarding the risk to pregnant patients, it is even more concerning that pregnant and lactating patients have been excluded from clinical trials for a coronavirus vaccine. The new information from the CDC highlights the importance of pregnant patients being prioritized for a coronavirus vaccine once it becomes available. ACOG again urges the federal government to use its resources to ensure the safe inclusion of pregnant and lactating patients, including patients of color, in trials for vaccines and therapeutics to ensure that all populations are included in the search for ways to prevent and treat COVID-19.13
Questions About Safety of Vaccination During Pregnancy
The time-honored rule of avoiding any potential toxic exposure that might interfere with the normal development of the fetus was suspended and replaced by the CDC in 2006 with an assumption that vaccination during pregnancy was safe after the CDC strengthened recommendations that all pregnant women, healthy or not, should get influenza vaccine during in any trimester. This CDC recommendation was followed up in 2011 with another new one directing obstetricians and gynecologists to administer a pertussis containing Tdap (tetanus, diphtheria and pertussis) shot to all pregnant women during every pregnancy.14 15
