    Any one that has it third trimester just needs to remember to request an extra dtp vax for bub at 18 months.
    It's not on the schedule at 18 months anymore but the only 'side effect' of vaccination in the third trimester is that the bub needs an extra booster.

    The effect of high maternal antibodies I assume?

    So although I have had it 2 years ago when DS was born, and they are only due every 10 years could I still get it again with this baby? Or doesn't have to be only if you are due?

    I had no side effects, other than sore spot on the arm for a few days, and bub is now a healthy 6.5-month old.

    With all these cases of whooping cough popping up I think it's a really good idea to get it in the third trimester.

    Is there absolutely NO risk to the unborn baby from it? I want it but I'd never forgive myself if he got sick from my vaccination

    Default whooping cough vaccination while pregnant

    You can never say there is absolutely 'no risk' when giving a medication however the risk of contracting and becoming ill from whooping cough as an infant is far greater then the risk of there being an adverse reaction to the vaccine.

    For a wealth of info on pertussis vaccination see the immunisation schedule here http://www.health.gov.au/internet/immunise/publishing.nsf/Content/handbook10-4-12 it discusses towards the end benefits of third trimester boosters.
    I have asked parents and brothers to get their boosters and currently considering a carefully worded email to other family/friends respectfully telling them not to visit if they do not wish to have a booster. I know it can be awkward asking this of others but I read something on this last week along the lines of 'you'll get over feeling uncomfortable making this request, other people will get over you making this request, but you'll never get over it if your baby died of whooping cough'. Too true.

    Agree. My parents, who initially refused, have booked for a booster tommorrow. I told them they wont be seeing bub until after bub s vaccines if they wish not to do it and I think that made them reconsider their initial decision. As people call or txt asking if they can visit, once bub is born, I ll politelty decline visits from those sick and not immunised. I m not bothered if I insult anyone as I myself wouldnt be insulted if someone asked me to have a booster before visiting their bub.

    My brother in law went to his GP for the vaccine, explaining he was about to become an uncle and the GP told him he didn't need to worry about it and not to bother getting the vaccine!
