The chance that you will become seriously ill with chickenpox later in life is higher if you are pregnant. If you get chicken pox during your pregnancy, there is a very small chance of birth defects in your unborn baby.
The chance of premature birth is also greater. Are you pregnant and did you not have chickenpox as a child? And have you not been vaccinated against chicken pox? Please contact your doctor immediately in the following cases:
- You have been in contact with someone with chicken pox or shingles.
- You suspect you have chicken pox. In this case, also consult your doctor if you have just given birth.
