Answer to your Health Question

Question: I am 7 weeks pregnant and have been in contact with a child who has measles. Could this be harmful to my unborn baby? Amy

Answer: Dear Amy,

If you are not immune to measles it is important that you visit your doctor immediately for treatment as it can have effects on an unborn baby.

A woman cannot catch measles if she is immune and therefore cannot affect a fetus, even after coming into contact with someone who has it.
