International Prenatal Infection Prevention Month, held in February, promotes awareness of infections transmitted from mother to baby. Maternal immunization is the most effective way to prevent infections which may be transmitted during pregnancy and/or the newborn period. A pregnant woman should get vaccinated against whooping cough and flu during each pregnancy. Please check with your healthcare provider regarding vaccines you may need to keep you and your baby healthy.
