We understand that there are many questions regarding COVID-19 in pregnant patients, as well as the safety of the new vaccines. Below is the latest information from the Society for Maternal Fetal Medicine. We encourage you to review it, and discuss the risks and benefits of the vaccine with your physician. As Board Certified Maternal Fetal Medicine specialists, our doctors are monitoring all of the latest information as it becomes available.

COVID Vaccine Advice if You Are Pregnant or Breastfeeding

The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has issued emergency use authorization for a vaccine to prevent COVID-19 for people age 16 years and older. Persons who are pregnant and breastfeeding may also choose to be vaccinated. This first vaccine, made by the drug company Pfizer, is given intramuscularly, in 2 doses at least 21 days apart.
1. It will be given first to healthcare workers and people living in long-term care facilities.
2. It is likely the next group to receive a vaccine will be people with preexisting high-risk health conditions, teachers and other
frontline workers, and people older than 65 years will get the vaccine. Everyone else will get the vaccine after these groups are vaccinated. At least one more vaccine will likely be approved in
the coming weeks and months.

Information for Pregnant Individuals
If you are pregnant or planning to become pregnant and are thinking about getting the vaccine, talk with your health care professional about the vaccine’s risks and benefits. During this
conversation, you can decide what is best for you based on your risk of getting COVID-19, your risk of getting severe disease if you become infected with COVID-19, and the risks and benefits of getting the vaccine.

To help with your decision, you and your healthcare professional should answer the following key questions:

• What are the known risks of getting the COVID-19 vaccine during pregnancy?
• The vaccine has not yet been tested in pregnant women. Pregnant women were not allowed to take part in the clinical trials of the vaccine. A few people who received the vaccine in the clinical trials did get pregnant. There have been no reports of any problems with these pregnancies, and they are continuing to be monitored.
• Going forward, as pregnant individuals get the vaccine, the FDA will gather detailed information about its safety and effectiveness during pregnancy. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), along with other federal partners, will monitor new vaccines for serious side effects using existing vaccine safety monitoring systems. You can participate in this effort by enrolling in V-Safe After Vaccination Health Checker (more information on this program is given below).
• A safe vaccine is one in which the benefits of getting it outweigh the risks. The Pfizer vaccine is not a live vaccine. There is only a very small chance that the vaccine crosses the placenta, so it’s unlikely that it even reaches the fetus, although we don’t know this for sure. The only people older than age 16 who should NOT get the vaccine are those who have had a severe allergic reaction to vaccines in the past.
• Side effects may occur in the first 3 days after getting the COVID-19 vaccine. These include mild to moderate fever, headache, and muscle aches. In the COVID-19 trials, less than 4% of people developed a fever after the first dose, and about 16% developed a fever after the second dose. Experts recommend that pregnant people receiving the COVID-19 vaccine who develop fever take acetaminophen (Tylenol). This medication is safe to use during
pregnancy and does not affect how the vaccine works.

What are the benefits of getting the COVID-19 vaccine?
The vaccine can help protect you from getting COVID-19. You must get both doses of the vaccine for it to be fully effective. It’s not yet known whether it prevents passing the virus to others if you do get COVID-19 or how long protection lasts. At this time, vaccinated people still need to wear masks and practice social distancing.

What are the known risks of getting COVID-19 during pregnancy?
About 1 to 3 per 1,000 pregnant women with COVID-19 will develop severe disease. Compared with those who aren’t pregnant, COVID-19-infected pregnant people:
• Are 3 times more likely to need ICU care
• Are 2 to 3 times more likely need advanced life support and a breathing tube
• Have a small increased risk of dying due to COVID-19
They may also be at increased risk of stillbirth and preterm birth.

What is my risk of getting COVID-19?
Your risk of getting COVID-19 depends on the chance that you will come into contact with another infected person. This may be higher if you live in a community where there is a lot of COVID-19 infection or work in healthcare or another high-contact setting. The vaccine is being given first to healthcare workers, many of whom are considering pregnancy, pregnant, or lactating.

What is my risk for severe complications if I get COVID-19?
Older pregnant women; those with have preexisting health conditions, such as a body mass index higher than 35 kg/m2, diabetes, and heart disorders; and Black or Latinx women have an especially increased risk of severe disease and death from COVID-19.

After you and your healthcare provider answer the above questions, you can make an informed decision about whether to get the COVID-19 vaccine. If you still have questions about the vaccine or need more information, ask your health care provider or go to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s COVID-19 vaccine webpage.

Information for Breastfeeding/Lactating Individuals
The COVID-19 vaccine should be offered to people who are breastfeeding/lactating. Although lactating individuals were not allowed in the clinical trials, based on experience with other
vaccines, the benefits of vaccination outweigh the very small safety concerns. You don’t have to delay or stop breastfeeding just because you get the vaccine.

Choosing the Vaccine…Or Not
If you choose to get the vaccine, the CDC is committed to making sure that it is safe for all individuals. Your health professional will give you information about enrolling in the V-Safe After Vaccination Health Checker. This program lets your healthcare professional check in daily for 1 week following your vaccination. You can also report any side effects or concerns you might have – all through your smartphone! You’ll receive information about how to sign up when you get your vaccine. If you choose not to get the vaccine while pregnant, you can get it after you have your baby.
Talk to your health care provider about a plan to get the vaccine after pregnancy. No matter what you decide, it is important that you continue to follow COVID-19 infection prevention steps such as wearing a mask, washing your hands frequently, and maintaining
physical distancing of at least 6 feet.

We were so touched when one of our patients reached out to Dr. Lawrence Nathan recently with an amazing essay her son had written. The following was written by Jacob (who, by the way, won the essay contest for 2nd graders 🥰). Thank you to Natalie and her beautiful sons for letting us share their story!

**********************************************************
I want to tell you about my Everyday Heroes. They are: Dr. Lawrence Nathan, Dr. Matthew Clifton and Dr. Matthew Merves. They are my heroes because they helped my brother through hard times. They are really important to me because my little brother would not be alive if it weren’t for them.

Dr. Nathan helped my mom when my brother was sick in her belly. He looked inside her belly and saw that he was sick. She had to go to see him every week to see how my brother was doing. If Dr. Nathan did not do what he did for my mom, my little brother would have died in her belly.

Dr. Clifton took the bad part of my brother’s lung out. If he didn’t do that, my brother would have died. He did a really good job. He had a lot of pressure because he had to do surgery on a little baby and I think it would be hard to do that. He is really important because he saved my brother’s life.

Dr. Merves watched over my brother when he had trouble breathing in the NICU. If he didn’t do that, my brother would have died because he couldn’t breathe on his own. Dr. Merves made
sure he was breathing good and his tubes were helping him. He made sure he was doing ok and his heart was still beating, and he was still alive.

My brother Crosby is really funny and cute and wild, and he loves Power Rangers! He just turned four years old. He is the best brother I have ever had (and the only brother!). I love him so much.

If it weren’t for the doctors, I wouldn’t have him and I would be very sad. I am really thankful for them because they saved my brother’s life. They are my heroes!

Coronavirus Update

We understand that this is a scary time and that you have many questions about how coronavirus may affect you while pregnant. While researchers are learning more every day, there is still a very small sample size to provide data. The latest information from the Society for Maternal Fetal Medicine and the American College of Obstetrics & Gynecology states:

"Currently, there is limited information from published scientific reports about the susceptibility of pregnant women to COVID-19 and the severity of infection. Available data are reassuring but are limited to small case series. In general, pregnant women experience immunologic and physiologic changes that make them more susceptible to viral respiratory infections, including potentially COVID-19. It is reasonable to predict that pregnant women might be at greater risk for severe illness, morbidity, or mortality compared with the general population, as is observed with other related coronavirus infections [including severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus and other viral respiratory infections, such as influenza, during pregnancy."

Please know that our doctors and staff are taking every possible precaution to keep themselves and your family protected. At this time, all patients will be screened for COVID-19 symptoms before entering the office. For now, we are asking that you not bring anyone into the office with you to reduce potential exposure to yourself and others. Should we need to adjust your appointment for any reason, we will be sure to contact you, but otherwise you should plan on seeing your doctor as scheduled.

We know that this is a difficult time, but we will continue to provide you with the best perinatal care.

CDC

Here is the latest information from the CDC on the coronovirus and how it spreads. Georgia now has confirmed cases of the virus, so please take a moment to learn how to lower your risk.

Current understanding is that COVID-19 spreads mostly from person to person through respiratory droplets produced when a person coughs or sneezes, similar to how flu spreads. Most person to person spread happens when people are in close contact. It is also possible that the virus can spread when someone touches a contaminated surface and then touches their mouth, nose, or eyes.

Do you have any recommendations for online birthing classes?
Hello, My name is Pooja Patel, and I am a former patient of Dr. Trevitt and Dr. Fogle. On December 28, 2018 our son Sohan was born at 25 weeks as a micro-premie. I was originally scheduled to go in for a routine ultrasound with Dr. Trevitt that very day. My purpose of writing is to share that husband Akit and I have started a fundraiser for March of Dimes in honor of our amazing son Sohan who passed away at Piedmont Hospital soon after birth. As Georgia Perinatal Consultants has been a big part of our journey we wanted to share our fundraising page so others can donate, share our post from FB, share our fundraising page, etc to raise awareness for this important cause. I am not sure who the correct contact in the is for something like this, but we would be SO very honored if Georgia Perinatal Consultants consider donating for our fundraising team "Stride for Sohan" and the March of Dimes March 30 event in Cobb County. We would be honored if the practice donated to our team and supported this great cause! We are participating in the virtual walk as I am still recovering from my c-section. Below is a link to our fundraising page. NO PRESSURE but just want this to get in the right hands as there are so many people effected by infertility, miscarriage, and infant loss. It is so important to us that awareness is raised for maternal-fetal health. Please pass this along to the appropriate people within the practice and if there is someone who can talk to me about a donation or sponsorship I would be thrilled. https://www.marchforbabies.org/pk0606
Avoid the POS Dr. Raymond J. Allen. After my wife's OB noticed some issues on the ultrasound, we were sent to Georgia Perinatal Consultants. During our visit at their Kenestone Hospital location (he also attends the Northside Hospital location) this incompetent fool, Dr. Allen, did a detailed ultasound that confirmed issues with our daughters heart. He took us in his office and proceeded to tell us that since we are past the 20 week mark we could not terminate in GA, but could go out of state to terminate, with no explanation of the extent, severity, or possible solutions for our daughters condition. Fortunately we did not take this piece of crap, unprofessional doctor's suggestion and our daughter was born and taken care of at Children's Health Care of Atlanta and is doing really well. The liberal piece of crap Dr. Allen should have his license to practice medicine revoked. I sure hope nobody has ever taken his advice to terminate their pregnancy because he doesn't even have the expertise or wisdom to tell you what solutions you can pursue to actually help your child. So DO NOT see Dr. Allen if you have to visit there office and cherish the child you are about to have. Also, DO NOT go to the Northside Hospital location because they will charge you a crazy hospital fee which can be avoided if you go to the Kenestone location (possibly others too) in Kennesaw where you only have a co-pay.
Dear. Dr. Gomez and Dr. Hall My name is Aleama Phillips and I was admitted on March 15, 2017 at 20 weeks pregnant to have an emergency cervical cerclage procedure administered by Dr. Hall. I was told that the procedure might not work because my cervix was extremely short. Dr. Hall was scheduled to put 1 (one) stitch in but was able to put 2 (two) stitches in. After my cerclage was placed, I was able to go home and I saw Dr. Gomez for 11 (eleven) weeks. I gave birth to a bouncing baby boy named Koron Omar Ali Webb on July 31, 2017 at 31 weeks gestation. I wanted to personally thank Dr. Hall for saving my baby life and Dr. Gomez for making sure my baby was healthy. I am extremely thankful. Baby Koron spent 6 weeks in NICU and because of Dr. Gomez care, he was extremely health to come home on September, 14, 2017. Koron had no major problems except for the normal preemie breathing problems, but as you can see, Koron overcame that small obstacle. Koron is now 13 weeks old and is a very happy but spoiled baby. Dr. Gomez you stated during one of my visits that you can see my baby was a handsome kid and you were indeed true. Attached are some pictures of my handsome little fellow. Thanks again and enjoy. Love, Aleama Phillips, Koron Webb and Baby Koron Omar Ali Webb
