The more you know about your pregnancy and your options, the more you are likely to feel in control. The information given here is based on The Pregnancy Book, which your midwife should give you at your first appointment.   

It has now been recommended that all pregnant ladies between 28 and 38 weeks pregnant should be offered the Whooping cough (pertussis) vaccine.  This is because the incidence of this disease has risen in young babies and can be fatal.  It has been shown in research that giving the mum the vaccine at this stage of pregnancy gives some immunity to the baby until it can have its own vaccination at two months of age. 

Please ring and make your appointment with the Practice Nurse to have this done if you haven't received a letter.
