Nurses Speak Out, #0028, Registered Midwife, WA, 28/09/2021, AHPRA Verified
By Staff Reporter
Thank you so much for the work you are doing.
I’m a Registered Midwife in W.A. and until I resigned on Wednesday Sep 21, I had been working at the biggest hospital in the South West region. When RANZCOG and the ACM came out with their guidelines stating the c19 vax was safe for pregnancy, the directive from the hospital was to promote it hard.
At the hospital clinic, I know of 2 women that received their first doses, and they subsequently lost their babies;
1st dose at 34 weeks and 2 days, fetal death in utero at 36 weeks
1st dose 28+2, fetal death in utero 29 weeks I know of other women in the community under 20 weeks as reported to me by midwives that work with General Practice obstetricians;
1st dose 12+6, miscarriage 13 weeks
1st dose 17 +5, miscarriages 18 weeks
1st dose 12 weeks, miscarriage 12+2
Now, I know correlation does not mean causation, but it certainly should be investigated. Only one of the above cases have been reported. I fear many won’t be, and they will be lumped into the 1:4 pregnancy loss statistic.
It’s not something that is asked (vaccine status) when women come to the hospital with a loss, so many may fall through and be missed.
I mentioned it to a doctor, and they didn’t see the connection. I’m so sad to leave a job I love, but this isn’t health. This is something entirely different.
