“The miscarriage rate following COVID vaccination in women is the same as normal,” says Dr. Viki Male, an expert lecturer at Imperial College London. She says claims that the rate is higher than normal – such as those by Naomi Wolf showing a 4000% increase in pregnancy loss – are based on faulty numbers because they include all miscarriages “after seeing a heartbeat on a scan” and are “based on a misunderstanding of how spontaneous reporting works.”

“Studies of more than 360,000 people vaccinated against COVID in pregnancy find no increased risk of pregnancy loss,” tweeted Dr. Male. She joins Ask Dr. Drew LIVE to discuss the data and safety of mRNA vaccines for pregnant women.

Dr. Victoria Male is a Senior Lecturer in Reproductive Immunology based in the Department of Metabolism, Digestion and Reproduction at Imperial College London. She received a PhD at the University of Cambridge on NK cells in human pregnancy. In 2015, she was awarded a Sir Henry Dale Fellowship. During the COVID-19 pandemic, Dr. Male was also involved in collating and communicating information on the effect of SARS-CoV2 infection and COVID vaccination on fertility, pregnancy, and breastfeeding, and in research on how COVID vaccination affects the menstrual cycle.
