3,816 Babies Died After Their Mothers Were Vaccinated – Report
Unborn Babies Are More At Risk From Covid Vaccines Than Any Other Vaccine.
In a shocking new finding, according to VAERS – the U.S. Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System – 57% of all the vaccinations that resulted in a baby or fetus dying in the past 25 years occurred when pregnant women started receiving COVID-19 vaccines.
The 3,816 babies who died after their mothers were vaccinated between December 2020 and March 2022 are likely only a fraction of the actual number of adverse events such as spontaneous abortions and fetal deaths.
Risks to Babies of Vaccinated Mothers as Reported in VAERS

If you are pregnant, your baby is more likely to die at or before birth if you receive a COVID-19 vaccine than if you receive measles, mumps, flu, tetanus, or any other vaccine. This and other alarming facts about risks to babies of vaccinated mothers comes from the U.S. government’s own Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS).
According to VAERS, between 1998 (the earliest VAERS reporting date) and May 2022, the total number of pregnant women who were vaccinated for all diseases and then lost their babies was 6,695. These babies died in spontaneous abortions and fetal disorders such as cardiac arrest and cystic hygroma (a tumor that forms on a newborn’s neck). But just in the past couple years, 3,816 babies died after their mothers received a COVID-19 vaccine manufactured by Moderna, Pfizer/BioNTech, or Janssen (Table 1). These women were vaccinated between December 2020 and March 2022. That means 57% of all the vaccinations that resulted in a baby or fetus dying in the past 25 years or so occurred when pregnant women started receiving COVID-19 vaccines.
Also according to VAERS, we know that very soon—within the first 10 days—after these mothers were vaccinated against COVID-19, 1,559 of their babies or fetuses died. The remaining 2,257 babies died from day 10 on. Of the pregnant women who had spontaneous abortions or their babies died of other fetal disorders, 20% lost their babies on the same day the mothers were vaccinated, and 21% lost their babies in the following 9 days (Table 2). Could it be a coincidence that a COVID-19-vaccinated woman loses her baby, and 41% of the time the baby dies within 10 days of the mother’s vaccination?
In spite of this unusual “coincidence,” many pregnant women go ahead with COVID-19 vaccination as recommended by the Centers for Disease Control. Does VAERS suggest which vaccine is safest for an unborn baby? Indeed, for women vaccinated between December 2020 and March 2022, VAERS reports that of the 3,816 pregnant women whose babies died after COVID-19 vaccination, 2,819 women—nearly 74%—received the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine (Table 1). About 21% received Moderna’s vaccine and less than 5% received Janssen’s vaccine. Babies’ deaths were roughly equal after the mothers’ first and second shots. These figures are rough; they would be more accurate if we knew how many pregnant women were vaccinated with each of the three vaccines. Still as we have reported before, the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine appears to be putting unborn babies at increased risk of death.
These are alarming figures, and they are even more so when we understand what VAERS data represent. The U.S. government’s guide to VAERS states that “‘Underreporting’ is one of the main limitations of passive surveillance systems, including VAERS. The term, underreporting refers to the fact that VAERS receives reports for only a small fraction of actual adverse events.” So we must keep in mind the 3,816 babies who died after their mothers were vaccinated between December 2020 and March 2022 are probably only a fraction of the actual number of adverse events such as spontaneous abortions and fetal deaths.
There are other limitations to data gathered in VAERS. The total count of unborn babies who died after their mothers were vaccinated (6,695) varies depending on the data selection criteria, such as symptoms, vaccine manufacturer, and vaccine products (Fig. 1). In addition, VAERS has data integrity issues; for example, some time intervals have no data associated with them, the system doesn’t collect information on how old a fetus was at death (how far along the woman’s pregnancy was), and followup health records are not available (from the VAERS website: “amended [followup] data are not available to the public”), making it difficult to verify cause and effect. Usefulness of the VAERS data also suffers because VAERS does not tell us the total number of doses given to pregnant women for each vaccine.
Nonetheless, the VAERS data suggest, as do Pfizer sources, grave danger to pregnant women and their babies from COVID-19 vaccines. When will the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and the Food and Drug Administration acknowledge and act on these alarming safety signals?
