A midwife in New York City said she had a scare when she was first diagnosed with pneumonia.
She said she was given a dose of the LPN vaccine that was given to babies during pregnancy.
Her daughter, however, was born with pneumonia in the first trimester of her pregnancy.
“The LPN was so effective,” the midwife told CNN.
“I’ve had no complaints at all.”
The midwife said she thought she was being vaccinated in order to prevent a serious birth.
But she was not told that the vaccine was being administered to babies at that stage.
“There was no discussion, no discussion about the potential for the risk of a serious outcome,” she said.
The woman said she believed she was getting the LPP vaccine in case she was pregnant with twins.
But the midwifery doctor told her that was not the case.
“She was just really excited to say this is for babies,” the woman told CNN affiliate WCBS.
“That it is the vaccine and this is what it’s going to do for you and your babies.”
The woman was able to get the LPMP vaccine in time for her daughter’s birth.
She is now pregnant with a third child.
