I just got mine yesterday & was told that it'll protect them from whooping cough when they are born..they didn't say anything bad about it
Just making sure cause i always hear ppl saying good and bad things about different type of vaccines during pregnancy and im already kinda scared of them so i just wanna make sure its safe to take them
I got mine it's very important you get it because whooping cough is no joke :/ but only bad thing about the shot is my arm hurt soooo bad after
Tdap is a really important vaccine to get while pregnant. It protects you from getting whooping cough and you pass the antibodies that your body makes on to the baby. Newborns have no protection against whooping cough if you dont get the vaccine and there is no treatment for a newborn who gets it. It is very dangerous to them so I think you made the right choice. I do encourage you to question your doctor if they suggest anything you aren't sure about though. I only say that because I know sometimes I would just go with what the doc suggests and then feel uncomfortable later and I've learned to question more just so I know what I'm agreeing to. And I trust my doctors, but they don't mind answering my questions.
I made the right choice then, just like you said sometimes i feel unsure of certain things thats why i always ask. Thank you :)
I heard that if you don't get it at the dr then you will get it at the hospital so may as well get it over with!
Your Dr would never give you a vaccine that is unsafe.
