Answer: Vaccines recommended during pregnancy
Two vaccines are specifically recommended for pregnant women:
1).Flu (influenza) vaccine, which should be given during the first or second trimester of pregnancy.
The flu vaccine is recommended because pregnant women are seven times more likely to come down with a severe and even fatal case of the flu than women of the same age who aren't pregnant.
2).Tdap (tetanus-diphtheria-acellular pertussis) vaccine, given when you're 27 to 36 weeks pregnant to guard against whooping cough (also known as pertussis).
The Tdap vaccine is recommended during pregnancy – even if you've had the shot before pregnancy. If you get the shot between 27 and 36 weeks of pregnancy, your body produces pertussis antibodies that you can pass on through the placenta to your unborn child.
Antibodies from moms save babies
who are too young to get the vaccine
Both the above vaccinations have excellent safety records.Please take them if you've been told by your obstetrician.
