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.

Mumps is no longer manufactured as an individual vaccine .
It is combined with measles and rubella. Asmentionedhowever, all three vaccines are contraindicated in pregnancy as stated.
