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.

In those cases where accidental administration occurred during pregnancy, no bad outcomes have been recorded, however they don't want to see the first one & recommend waiting

In brief: Wait
Generally live attenuated vaccines are recommended not to be given until after the baby is born, because of potential risk.
