Webcast for pregnant women and new moms: Swine flu
The flu season will be here before you know it. Health experts believe the swine flu will be back along with the regular seasonal flu.
To help pregnant women and new moms learn more, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) aired a Webcast last Thursday. It’s now archived on the CDC Web site.
By the way, swine flu is now also called H1N1 flu. And the vaccine is expected in October. Pregnant women are one of the top-priority groups for receiving the vaccine. News Moms Need will let you know as soon as the vaccine is ready.
Also, pregnant women should be vaccinated against seasonal flu. That vaccine is already available. So if you’re pregnant, ask your health care provider about it now.
