Rabies vaccine: Hi,
If this was for prevention (meaning you didn't get the shots after you got bitten by an animal) likely had the appropriate amount of doses. You'll have to check with your local disease control agencies to see if there is a local shortage of rabies vaccine or not. (this type of information is only available locally) Hope this helps

No: I have never seen any evidence to suggest this is true.

Does my baby need vaccines if I am breastfeeding?

Yes: Breastmilk has very important maternal antibodies to help your baby fight off some infections in the beginning of their life but it does not protect against the diseases that vaccines do. It is very important for your child to get his/her vaccinations on time in order to have the best immunity against serious diseases.

When during pregnancy should I change my sleep position?

Yes: In a perfect world, pregnant women should sleep on their left sides. This allow the uterus and baby to roll off the blood vessels and allow greater blood return to the heart and subsequently to the baby. In most people, without severe anemia, it doesn't make as much difference if you sleep on your right, left or even back. I do tell back sleepers to try to lay on a pillow under one hip.

Not a good idea: In less there is an actual reason to not have vaccinations, like for example, you have another child who had some sort of severe reaction following vaccinations, it is not a good idea to avoid vaccinating children at the appropriate ages. In order to maintain what is known as: herd immunity, the vaccination rate in the general population needs to be 95%. Vaccinations save lives.
