Chickenpox & Pregnancy
Chickenpox can cause alarm in a pregnant woman. However, simple tests can determine if her body is protected against it, explains Dr. Ellen Schwartzbard, Obstetrician & Gynecologist at Baptist Health South Florida.
With those immunity tests, the doctor says, the mother does not have any concerns for her unborn baby.
The specialist also recommends to get the pre-pregnancy consult, because it is a very important opportunity for the woman to get ready for a future pregnancy.
