I went to my OB last week and she suggested I get a flu shot (to protect me and the baby). I did some research and thought I would share:
Pregnant women are also urged to get the flu shot, not only because they are at higher risk for flu-related complications, but because their vaccinations will also benefit their babies.
Infants under 6 months have the highest rate of hospitalization from the flu among children. Despite this hard fact, only 20 percent of currently pregnant women recently surveyed said they planned to be vaccinated this season.
