Like most moms-to-be, you want to give your baby a healthy start in life. Shots (also called immunizations) are a safe way to protect yourself and your baby from some harmful diseases.

Get up-to-date on the shots you need for a healthy pregnancy. Shots can be given before, during, and after you are pregnant.

“I never had chickenpox when I was little. I knew it could be bad for adults.  But, when I saw the pictures of babies with chickenpox it was really scary.  That’s what made me get chickenpox shots before I got pregnant.

- Amanda, mother of 2- and 4-year-old boys
