MAFS ‘Bryce Ruthven and Melissa Rawson link Pfizer jab to premature twins

Bryce Ruthven and Melissa Rawson from Gift At First Sight are criticized for suggesting that her second Pfizer plug led to their twins being born 10 weeks premature










Married at first glance couple Bryce Ruthven and Melissa Rawson have been criticized for seeming to suggest that their twin sons were born prematurely because Melissa had received the Pfizer Covid-19 vaccine while she was pregnant.

The couple shared a video for Instagram on Monday, discussing their babies’ progress in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) after they were born 10 weeks prematurely on October 16th.

But their suggestion that the boys arrived early when Melissa got her second Pfizer plug angered some fans, who said it was highly unlikely that had been the case.

Many critics pointed out that twins are often born prematurely and there is no evidence at all that the Covid-19 vaccine affects pregnancy.

They also feared that Bryce and Melissa’s video could deter pregnant women from getting the vaccine and put them at risk of becoming seriously ill with coronavirus.

‘Are you blaming the Covid plug for giving birth to twins prematurely? Many twins are premature. Your post already has people talking about pregnant women not getting the plug. I wonder, was that your intention? ‘ one person commented.

‘Correlation does not equal causation. ‘It is dangerous to suggest that it had anything to do with a very normal twin birth, which after 28 weeks is definitely expected to be able to come early,’ said another.

A third wrote: ‘I have had a sting and did not go into premature birth, and many women who had it as I know have not either. She was pregnant with twins, and more than half were born prematurely, so it is possible that it was actually coincidental. ‘

‘People are so quick to blame the vaccine. It is highly likely that there was no association between the vaccine and preterm birth. When pregnant women get the vaccine, their babies can actually be born with the antibodies to fight Covid, ‘commented a fourth.

Another wrote: ‘Everyone is entitled to their opinion, but I’m really concerned that this blames the Covid vaccination for what is likely to be a coincidence without medical evidence that it is linked.

‘It’s so incredibly dangerous for pregnant women to get Covid and [this video] can deter people from getting it, potentially putting themselves and baby at more risk. ‘

Reaction: Their suggestion that the boys arrived early as a result of Melissa getting her second Pfizer plug angered some fans, who said it was highly unlikely that this had been the case.

In the video, Melissa said there was ‘no medical indication’ that her babies would be premature – seemed to suggest that her second Pfizer plug had caused the twins to be born 10 weeks premature.

‘Friday the 15th [of October]”I had actually ordered my second Pfizer plug, and yes, I had obviously gone to the doctors and talked to my obstetrician, and they had all said that it is safe for pregnant women to get their Pfizer plug,” Melissa said.

‘Yes, I got mine done, and 14 hours later I had gone into labor.’

Bryce later told the Daily Mail Australia that he had not been made aware of any backlash and clarified: ‘We have not blamed the Covid vaccine for Melissa giving birth prematurely either.’

“It is safe for pregnant women to receive it from a certain point in time during their pregnancy,” he added.

‘The short video is from an extended video released tonight which will make it very clear for everyone to know our thoughts on the matter.’

There is no evidence that the Covid vaccine causes children to be born prematurely.

More than 50 percent of twins are born before 37 weeks, and up to 15 percent before 32 weeks, so Bryce and Melissa’s sons are born prematurely is hardly unusual.

The MAFS couple were overjoyed when they welcomed their twin boys, Levi and Tate, on October 16th. The babies were taken to the NICU, but are expected to be just fine.

Facts: There is no evidence that the Covid vaccine causes children to be born prematurely.  More than 50 percent of twins are born before 37 weeks and up to 15 percent before 32 weeks, so Bryce and Melissa's sons being born prematurely are hardly unusual.
