    Yes, I can see how you felt! Well I'm glad that your Mum understood especially because she works with children
    It's hard when someone has a phobia.

    Thanks for replying!!

    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.

    With MMR, you need two shots to be fully covered. There are some people in the population who don't hold immunity even with both doses. It isn't many people though, around 1% of people who have had two doses. It is around 5% for those who have only had MMR once.

    This! I have had so many MMR shots but I've also had measles. So annoying. Saying that I have a natural immunity to chicken pox. It's weird how the body works!
