We are delighted to recommend Dr Sen to anyone looking for an obstetrician. We were initially attracted by his calm, personable and down-to-earth manner. Now, having had our baby, we are convinced how lucky we were to have been under his care. Throughout the pregnancy and birth his knowledge and presence was always reassuring and whenever things did not go according to plan, as sometimes happens, we knew we could rely on him having Plan B ready and waiting. We literally trusted him with our daughter’s life and would gladly do so again.
Vaccinations in Pregnancy
Vaccinations are not generally recommended in pregnancy with the exception of the influenza or “flu” vaccine, which is the one vaccine that is recommended by the National Health and Medical Research Council of Australia
Each year the dominant strains of flu are incorporated into a vaccine that is given to people at risk, including pregnant women.
I strongly recommend the flu vaccine if you will be in the second or third trimester of pregnancy between May and October.
