The death of a pregnant woman’s stillborn child is allegedly caused by the H1N1 flu vaccine.

A 41-year-old woman in her 38th week of pregnancy, claimed her child’s death is caused by the H1N1 flu vaccine which she received on Nov. 27.

With only 15 days left until she gave birth to the child, the fetus was found with no heartbeat when she went for her pregnancy test on Dec.2. The case is suspected to be Taiwan’s first miscarriage resulted from the inoculation.

However, the director of Chang Gung Memorial Hospital Department of obstetrics and gynecology in Keelung Ceng Zhi-ren said that the cause of the child’s death may be more related to the pregnant woman’s advanced age in carrying the child than getting the vaccine shot.

Ceng explained that as women get older, the placenta which provides oxygen to the fetus will more easily be blocked and more likely to cause death for the baby. In addition, since the women did not appear to suffer immediate side-effects, such as spasm or rash after she received the vaccine shot and the fetus lived for five days after her vaccination, the director believes that the H1N1 vaccine is not the direct cause for the death of the fetus.

In order to protect the fetus and women during pregnancy from the H1N1 virus, experts in the gynecology field and officials from the Department of Health strongly advise that pregnant women should still take the flu vaccine shots.

The Center for Disease Control (CDC) said they will make their statement when further test results on the fetus and placenta of the case is confirmed.
