Don't you just love the @UKHSA?

Not only have they delayed publishing #pregnancy data after June 2022 in the latest vaccine surveillance report but they are gaslighting you about the #stillbirth rates.

Here's the chart:
@1979pop @ClareCraigPath
Here are the figures
No doses of vaccine in pregnancy = 3.76 per 1000
One+ dose in pregnancy = 3.3 per 100
95% confidence intervals do not cross.
A significant increase then, right?

There was another piece of information missing which was buried further in the report.

Minority groups had a 25% lower uptake of vaccination

Why is that important?

About your partners' Rhesus factor

Rh+♂+ Rh+♀=✅
Rh-♂ + Rh+♀=✅
Rh-♂ + Rh-♀ =✅
Rh+♂ + Rh-♀=⚠️ Caution when pregnant!

Rhesus incompatibility between a woman♀ & her man♂ can cause baby jaundice, repeated miscarriages, stillbirths & more.

A thread 🧵


Humans belong to blood groups 'A', 'B', 'AB', or 'O'.

Also, we're either
- Rhesus positive (Rh+), or
- Rhesus negative (Rh-)

The "+" or "-" sign usually attached to your blood group represents your rhesus status!

Being Rh+ or Rh- depends on you having certain proteins called #RhesusAntigens on the surface of your red blood cells.

If you have the rhesus antigens, you're Rh+

If you don't have the rhesus antiges, you're Rh-

@SandsUK work hard to support bereaved parents - mums, dads, and non binary parents. Lesbian mums,straight couples,single parents, wider families. Anyone who has had a baby that died who needs advice and care. Please donate to them if you can afford it 🦋
When you’re writing about #miscarriage #EctopicPregnancy and #stillbirth language matters. But it is not as straightforward as it might seem. If you’re talking about “mother” as the person who’s physically been pregnant and is straight it’s clear who you mean by “bereaved mum”
But if you’re wanting to make lesbian and bi mums feel included in support and care, just as we should do with dads, it can be confusing if you use the term “mother” to mean the person who was pregnant. There are two mums, one was pregnant and had the physical experience of loss

A new study on #COVID19 and pregnancy published by the #CDC reports premature births were 25% more likely in patients with #COVID and 300% more likely in those with #coronavirus symptoms.…
The researchers looked at medical data on nearly 600 hospital patients between March and mid-August who both tested positive for #COVID and were pregnant.
10 patients experienced miscarriage or stillbirth, but the report noted that it "likely underestimates the percentage of pregnancy losses that occur among women with COVID-19." Five of the pregnancy losses occurred after 20 weeks into the pregnancy.

According to 🆕 estimates, almost 2 million babies are stillborn every year – or 1 #stillbirth every 16 seconds.

#COVID19 related health service disruptions could worsen the situation, potentially adding 200,000 more stillbirths over a 12-month period:
A #stillbirth is defined as a baby born with no signs of life at 28 weeks of pregnancy or more.

84% of stillbirths, occur in low- and lower-middle-income countries. In 2019, 3 in 4 stillbirths occurred in sub-Saharan Africa or Southern Asia.

#Miscarriage is the most common reason for losing a baby during pregnancy.

Losing a baby in pregnancy is still a taboo subject worldwide, linked to stigma and shame.

It’s every parent’s greatest fear and we need to talk about it.

Pregnancy loss is defined differently around the world, but in general:
#Miscarriage = A baby who dies before 28 weeks of pregnancy
#Stillbirth = A baby who dies at or after 28 weeks of pregnancy

There are many reasons why a #miscarriage may happen, including:
• fetal abnormalities
• the age of the mother
• infections - many of which are preventable such as malaria and syphilis
Pinpointing the exact reason is often challenging

Improving maternal & child health is a WHO priority, today and every day.
Every day, approximately more than 800 women die from preventable causes related to pregnancy and childbirth

WHO recommends antenatal care that includes a minimum of 8 contacts with health professionals throughout pregnancy to identify and manage risks
