INFORMATION FOR WOMEN WHO HAVE FLU (INFLUENZA) DURING PREGNANCY OR BREASTFEEDING

 

What is the flu (influenza)?

The flu is a highly contagious virus that causes a respiratory illness. It is passed from person to person when an infected person coughs or sneezes and a healthy person breaths in the virus. It can also be passed if a person touches something like a door handle that was previously touched by an ill person, and then touches their nose, mouth, or eyes. Adults are contagious one day before they get symptoms and up to seven days after they first get sick. Children are contagious for even longer than adults.
