To help keep women and their unborn children healthy before, during, and after pregnancy, several vaccinations are safe and advised. The antibodies that women produce in response to these vaccinations not only shield them, but also cross the placenta and aid in shielding their unborn children from life-threatening illnesses. Pregnancy vaccinations also reduce the risk that a woman may contract a serious illness and then pass it on to her unborn child.
