Thank u for this information we are starting to inform others of our decision to urge those that will visit us in hosp after bubs birth that its mandatory to get a booster. Lucky for us really none of our families live in oz so may not receive many visitors anyway.
As a nanny in London my boss insisted I get a booster for polio as she said newborn baby faeces could have a contamination.
We all have to be proactive who wants to be watching their baby very unwell etc in a hospital battling these diseases.
Hi Ladies, I know this is a bit old, but wanted to jump in.
I am totally on board with this, and DH is the same. I'm lucky that most of my family is in health care so are covered (and totally understand). Hopefully the in-laws are as accommodating, but I suspect they'll be fine.
Anyone know the MMR booster guidelines? I know WC is every 5 years, but unsure of the other. I know my GP checked my bloods before I got pregnant, but unsure if it's excessive to ask family the same.
Pregnant for the first-time?
