DSD came home with a note from school yesterday saying that some children in her school have got chicken pox. I'm in the first trimester of pregnancy and although I remember having chicken pox myself as a child, I was just wondering what the risks are?

if you have had chicken pox before then you should be fine as you are probably immune.

What are the risks of chickenpox during pregnancy?

What should I do if I'm pregnant and I've been near someone with chickenpox?
