During pregnancy, your immune system is naturally weaker than usual. This means you are more susceptible to certain infections and illnesses which can be harmful to you and your developing baby.
Following some simple precautions will help minimise the risk to you and your baby of developing these health issues.
Immunisation is a simple and effective way to protect yourself and your baby from certain infections. Before becoming pregnant, check that you have protection against diseases that can cause illness in you or your unborn baby.
As well as the routine immunisations such as tetanus and polio, pregnant women should have immunity against measles, mumps, rubella, chickenpox, whooping cough and influenza.
All women are encouraged to get vaccinated before pregnancy.
