Mother's Vaccination Status EXCLUDED From Neonatal Death Investigation

An investigation has been launched in Scotland to investigate an unnatural spike in Neonatal death (under 4 weeks old). Can you guess what data point is being excluded?

Scotland witnessed an unprecedented and unnatural spike is neonatal death reported between September 2021 and March 2022 . According to the National Institute of Health (NIH), neonatal death is defined as “the death of a live born infant, regardless of gestational age at birth, within the first 28 completed days of life.”1

In May of 2022, the BBC reported that Scotland saw a total of 18 neonatal deaths in March of 2022, which averaged out to 4.6 deaths per 1,000.2. The BBC also reported that this alarm was first sounded in September of 2021 when the spike reached 4.9 deaths per 1,000. This was an increase from 2.1 deaths per 1,000 in 2020. According to this BBC article:

Long-term trends show neonatal mortality has reduced by 10.2% in Scotland, from 1.66 per 1,000 live births in 2013 to 1.49 deaths per 1,000 live births in 2019…

…Deaths of newborn babies have fallen steadily in recent decades with the mortality rate per 1,000 births dropping from double figures in the 1970s to 2.1 in 2020.

Regardless of where you calculate the increase from, you can see there is a substantial increase in neonatal death starting in 2021. In calculating the numbers from 2020 (2.1 per 1,000) to the maximum spike in September of 2021 (4.9 in 1,000), you see an increase of 133.33%

In Scotland, the COVID-19 Injections were rolled out in December of 2020.3 It is interesting how exactly nine months later there was an extreme spike in neonatal death, considering a pregnant woman's gestation period is around nine months. This also takes into consideration the 28 day period, post-birth, where an infant’s death is considered a "neonatal death".

Despite this, the investigation being launched in Scotland is deliberately excluding the mother’s vaccination status from the data set. The study will not take into consideration whether or not the mother had received one or more COVID-19 injections in these cases of neonatal death.

From an article by The Herald in Scotland:4

Public health experts ruled out any link between spikes in neonatal deaths and the Covid vaccine without checking whether any of the infants' mothers had received the jab during pregnancy.

Why would they exclude such a glaring and obvious reason for the spike in death? Once again, here is the explanation in that same article from The Herald:

Experts stressed that there was no “plausible” link between the unusually high levels of mortality among newborns in September last year and March this year to justify investigating maternal vaccination status. 

Public Health Scotland (PHS) said its consultants had given “careful consideration” to the “potential benefits and harms” of carrying out such an analysis as part of its probe into the tragic deaths of 39 infants, but concluded against doing so because “it was not possible to identify a scenario that would have resulted in a change to public health policy or practice” given that vaccination policy was already “appropriately informed by good-quality population-level evidence and safety data”. 

Furthermore “the outcomes of such analysis, whilst being uninformative for public health decision making, had the potential to be used to harm vaccine confidence at this critical time”. 

By excluding this data set, they can omit the COVID-19 injection as a possible explanation for the cause of these deaths. By doing so, they can ensure that as many people as possible will continue to receive the injections without knowing all of the risks.

This is a blatant disregard for “the science” that these people claim to hold in such high regard. There is nothing more unscientific than deliberately choosing to ignore the most likely cause of an outcome simply because the investigators are afraid of the results.

This case highlights, without any doubt, that these government entities do not actually care about the health of the public. They are willing to cover up the deaths of newborn babies in order to protect themselves.

We can look to other supporting evidence to backup the claims that the COVID-19 is contributing to deadly health outcomes in regard to prenatal and neonatal health. The Vaccine Adverse Even Reporting System (VAERS) is a system offered by the US Center for Disease Control (CDC) which captures adverse events following vaccination that is designed to provide a safety signal for further follow up in the event that potential safety concerns arise. aggregates the data from the CDC’s Wonder System (VAERS) and compiles that data into a more user-friendly interface.

At the time of writing this article, VAERS has received 5,140 reports of miscarriage after receiving the COVID-19 injection, the majority happening within the first 48 hours following injection. The following charts are from

These data points clearly indicate reasonable suspicion that the COVID-19 injections have at least some correlation to these horrendous health outcomes and should be investigated.


A recent report from Public Health Scotland (PHS) attributes this dramatic spike in neonatal death to “social and economic pressures” as the potential cause. From The Herald:

… the report does point to "social and economic pressures of the pandemic period" as a plausible explanation as well as problems around healthcare, adding that the neonatal network "has reported periods of staffing pressure, in part due to Covid-19 staff absences".6

The fact that they will not investigate the COVID-19 injection as a possible cause of neonatal death because it could decrease people’s desire to receive the COVID-19 injection is criminal. They are deliberately choosing to allow people to walk blindly into the most horrific tragedy that a family could face in order to make money and preserve power.

These mothers were most likely not provided with the proper information necessary to constitute informed consent prior to receiving a COVID-19 injection and the resulting tragedy is heartbreaking. It seems that the most important thing to do in this case would be to look at all of the possible causes of death in order to ensure that no more babies need to die unnecessarily in the future. Sadly, that is not the case. The agenda and big-pharma have to be protected at all costs, even if that cost includes the death of infants.
