is it true that if you get german measles when pregnant your baby will have handicaps?

A co-worker caught this while pregnant with her daughter which caused her daughter to be deaf.

wow that's really sad. but what can you do in order to make sure you dont catch this while carrying?

well you can get immunized so that will decrease the chances of catching it...

you should also be wary of chicken pox, mumps and measels.

 

Lisandra

dont you get this once in a lifetime though, or was that another one?

they can have heart ailments or cataracts. you can have the Rubella immunity test when you plan to get pregnant to know if you are at risk. if you are not immune then you can get a shot.

 

farrah

so you get the shot, wait awhile and then try to get pregnant?
