Vaccinated mom does Covid-19 antibody test on newborn to see if she got protection in-vitro08/16/2021
A MOM who had just given birth decided to perform a Covid-19 antibody test on her newborn to see if she got protection from her vaccine.
According to the Harvard Gazette, studies have shown that babies born from vaccinated moms are protected from Covid-19.
"We did a Covid antibody test on our baby when she was just an hour old," Dr. Omar Ibrahimi's wife revealed on TikTok.
"When I was about 11 weeks pregnant, I got my first dose of the Moderna vaccine, so when the baby was born, we asked the nurse for some of the blood she was already drawing anyway and we put it on the antibody kit.
"We waited 15 minutes and what you'll see is the baby's results are very similar to what I had when I recently did the test.
"Mine was stronger but she seemed to have some too."
Ultimately, the mom had passed her antibodies on to her daughter upon being born.
Back in November, a mom who had contracted Covid-19 while she was pregnant gave birth to a baby with antibodies.
Celine Ng-Chan, 31, from Singapore, was reportedly struck down with the coronavirus in March before her son was born on November 7.
Medics say all her antibodies have disappeared while her newborn, named Aldrin, is bursting with them, a report says.
She told the Straits Times: "My doctor suspects I have transferred my COVID-19 antibodies to him during my pregnancy."
In October, doctors in China reported finding antibodies, which eventually declined, in babies born to mothers with the virus, according to the journal Emerging Infectious Diseases.
