THE DANGER OF MEASELS TO A PREGNANT LADY
I am 19 weeks pregant andI havea 4 years old son. My problem is that my colleagues son has measels. How dangerous can it be to me and my unborn baby? Right now I am scared because she came to work today and she said that they only realised yesterday that the child has measels. The worst part is that I travel with her every afternoon on our way home. As a child I never suffered from measels.

Measles is not a problem. German measles can be dangerous.
