From the CDC:Rabies
Because of the potential consequences of inadequately managed rabies exposure, pregnancy is not considered a contraindication to postexposure prophylaxis. Certain studies have indicated no increased incidence of abortion, premature births, or fetal abnormalities associated with rabies vaccination. If the risk of exposure to rabies is substantial, pre-exposure prophylaxis also might be indicated during pregnancy. Rabies exposure or the diagnosis of rabies in the mother should not be regarded as reasons to terminate the pregnancy.

You have mentioned certain studies have indicated no increased incidence of abortion, premature birth or fetal abnormalities associated with rabies vaccination, is this means most of the studies can also have some abnormalities? i m really very worried.i can conceive without any hesitation?
