So far this flu season has been the worst in a very long time. Cases of the flu and the 2009 H1N1 strain is now wide spread in 48 states and pregnant women and new mothers need to be extra cautious. Protecting you and your baby need to be top priority and here is what you can do this flu season to make sure that you are both well:
- Get both the seasonal flu vaccine AND the H1N1 vaccine! Pregnant women are more susceptible to the H1N1 virus and can cause serious complications such as early labor, pneumonia and even death. Getting both shots will help protect you and your baby.
