“I took my first vaccine around 12 weeks, so I was about at the second trimester, and after consulting with my physician we both felt that was important to protect not only myself but as well the health of the unborn child at that point. I felt confident that my physician would recommend the best thing for me and that’s what she’s there for — that’s why I trusted her to lead me down that path, and we talked about it several times before I did that.
“It’s definitely safe to get it. It’s been very comforting throughout the pandemic to know that you have some protection – not only for yourself, but you just don’t know…I just had the thought of if I get COVID what will that do to the child, will I be able to continue to carry up until term. And now, I’m just – I’m 39 weeks and 3 days; so, you know, I’ve made it and been protected thus far.”
