In brief: MMR after delivery
The measles vaccine (MMR) is a live-virus vaccine, so it is not given to pregnant women or to women just about to become pregnant.
It can be given to the mom after her baby is born.

There have been many reports of MMR given when moms did not know they were pregnant with no negative outcomes.However, as Dr Kwok states, we do not willingly give this live virus vaccine during pregnancy out of a sense of caution.

In brief: No, but
It is safer than regular measles during pregnancy.
