Pregnancy and the Flu..doc source

Pin It

We are experiencing one of the worst flu seasons that we have seen in many years.

The CDC has new research showing that the flu can be spread just from the breath of someone who has the flu.

The flu is more likely to cause severe illness in pregnant women than in women who are not pregnant.

When you are pregnant, your immune system, heart, and lungs change, making women more prone to severe illness from the flu as well as hospitalization and even death.

A pregnant woman who has the flu may have a greater chance for serious problems for their unborn babies, including premature labor and delivery.

Many women are reluctant to receive the flu shot.

What is the reasoning behind this?

Dr. Daniel Roshan, a board-certified high-risk pregnancy maternal-fetal medicine OB/GYN in NYC, is available to provide his thoughts and comments to why every pregnant woman should get the flu vaccine and the possible dangers to both the mother and her unborn child if they choose not to.

He can also comment on if it is ever too late for a flu shot.

Please let me know when you would like to speak with Dr. Daniel Roshan on this timely topic.
