In brief: No

All live vaccines like the measles, mumps & rubella should be avoided in pregnancy.
Of the few accidental administrations reviewed, no bad outcomes have been recorded, but the potential for fetal transmission & problems cannot be ruled out.

In brief: MMR after delivery

The mumps 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.
