DTAP vaccine during late pregnancy?
My midwife has brought it up a few times. She is highly encouraging me to get it to help protect the baby when he arrives in January. What do you all think? Is it really necessary? She is concerned because there is an outbreak in my area. :( I don't even take tylenol when preggo.......( or not preggo for that matter....lol ) I don't know how I feel about this. I thought that IF I decided to get it, I would wait until after the baby is born, but everything that I have read highly encourages it in late pregnancy because the antibodies will go to the baby before they are born. I don't see why its necessary at all though. I'm going to bf my baby, so he is already going to get antibodies, without the vax. :(
