I am 8 weeks pregnant and was planning to start nursing in a few weeks time. I fell pregnant unexpectedly after having an mmr injection 4 days prior (a requirement for the enrolled nursing course.) I have done a lot of research regarding the harm that the mmr can do to the baby and the risk seems to be low yet i have also been to an obstetrician who was quite negative and didn't seem to know much about the injection(it was a terrible experience) he later called me and told me that there is only a 1-2% chance of there being any risk to my baby after finding out more. I'm just wondering if anyone has or knows of anyone who has had the mmr injection prior to pregnancy ( it is recommended to wait 1-2 months before getting pregnant after mmr) and also if anyone knows of a friendly obstetrician that would be greatly appreciated!

Hi. I had Prof Warwick Giles when he was in Newcastle. He is now at Royal North Shore area I believe and he is wonderful. He specializes if fetal medicine and would be a help to you I am sure.
There is also a immunisation advice line you can call. I think it's called immunisation australia.
Good luck with your pregnancy and nursing
