‘I decided the benefits were better than the known risks of contracting Covid-19 in pregnancy’
A pregnant Nottinghamshire woman has spoken about why she chose to have the Covid-19 vaccine and her experience in a bid to encourage other pregnant women to consider getting the jab too.
Olivia Saxton, 28, of Gedling, had her first vaccine at King’s Mill Hospital in January. She was eligible due to being a frontline health worker working in the maternity department.
At the time of her first vaccine she said she was apprehensive as she was trying for a baby. However, after speaking to a consultant she decided to go ahead and have the jab.
