  • What's going to happen with what? Your delivery? Nothing will change. You will just be congested. The best thing you can do is breastfeed, but it's not a bad idea to wear a mask, and to make sure to wash your hands. My mom had a really bad cold when I brought mine home, and he didn't catch it. Just be extra dilligent.

  • Other than that you might have a little bit of a cold while having your baby I don't think anything. If you're wondering if they'll still deliver you, I'm pretty sure they will. It's after you have the baby they will keep taking your temp., which is standard, and if you're temp is normal then they'll let you go when it's time.
