Immunisations before pregnancy

Immunisations can protect a mother and her unborn baby from potentially harmful infectious disease. When planning a pregnancy, it is a good idea to make sure all your immunisations are up to date to protect against diseases such as chickenpox, measles, mumps, rubella, tetanus, whooping cough, diphtheria, influenza, hepatitis B and pneumococcal disease. It is also recommended that all women be immunised for influenza and whooping cough during every pregnancy.
