    Hi girls,

    One of the managers at work came over today and said one of the girls has chicken pox and she wanted us to know in case we needed to do anything, she came out in spots on Sunday which means she could have been contagious on Thurs/Fri last week when we were at work.
    Do I need to do anything? I have a mw apt on Thursday so will ask her but didn't know if anyone had gone through he same thing?

    If you've had chicken pox, you and baby are covered by your immune system, so its fine. If your unsure if you've had it or not had it, you need to contact your midwife or gp first thing tomorrow.
