Pregnant women are being encouraged to protect themselves and their unborn babies by getting vaccinated.

Expectant mothers who have been left uncertain by the virus have shared their experiences to encourage others to get involved.

Nearly a fifth of critically ill Covid-19 patients are pregnant women – and 98% of those with symptomatic cases have not been vaccinated, according to health ministry data.

About one-fifth of women hospitalized with the virus need to be delivered prematurely to help them recover, and one-fifth of their infants need care in the neonatal unit.

No fully vaccinated pregnant women were admitted to intensive care with Covid-19 in the UK between February and the end of September 2021.

A powerful video of women recounting their experiences of C-sections and facing abandonment as they fight for their lives has been released in a bid to increase vaccine rates.

Tanviha, who works in research and anesthesiology in Manchester, who spent two months in hospital with Covid-19 following an emergency delivery, said she contracted Covid-19 during her second pregnancy last month. Two.

She said: ‘At the time, a vaccine was not available to me and I quickly moved on to the worse.

‘I was admitted to hospital and straight into intensive care when my condition worsened and my son was referred by emergency caesarean section.

‘I was put to sleep and intubated, and my family were told I couldn’t survive and prepare for the worst.

‘The day after I was intubated, the nurses told them they would shut the machine off, but I was instead transferred to an extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) machine, which is a last resort for patients with severe heart and lung failure, and it saved my life.

‘The first time I saw my son, he was two months old. It was the scariest experience of my life and my family’s but I’m just grateful that me and my son are still alive.

‘If you are unsure about vaccination, please come and get your injection, not everyone is as lucky as I am. “

Christina, a mental health therapist from Guildford, who was hospitalized with Covid-19 in her third trimester, said: ‘I had to have an emergency cesarean section out of concern that I might have a stillbirth. It was horrifying.

‘I don’t know what the future holds for me and my baby; Currently I am still suffering from symptoms along with anxiety as to how or when I will recover.

‘I encourage pregnant women to get vaccinated because I don’t want anyone to have to go through what I went through.’

Joanne, a makeup consultant from Lincolnshire, couldn’t decide on a shot and she ended up contracting the virus at 35 weeks pregnant, leaving her bedridden.

She said: ‘I was close to recovery but something was wrong. I couldn’t feel my baby kicking so I made an urgent appointment with the midwife.

‘The team at the hospital quickly discovered the baby’s growth had slowed and her fluids were low.

“Her heart rate was getting lower and lower so the consultant rushed me to an emergency cesarean section when Mollie-Ann was born.

‘I’m so grateful to the maternity team for keeping me and my baby safe and I just wish I had been vaccinated sooner.’
