    I'm supposed to be going to Turkey in about 4 weeks, but I have heard that I may need jabs???

    Midwife didn't know but said I couldn't have them. Now I'm panicking that I might get malaria or typhoid, or that doc will say I shouldn't go.

    Anyone know???

    Hi Kim

    I've never been to Turkey before so don't have first hand experience but from the UK governments website I found this link:

    Thanks a lot Lucy that was really useful. I think you only need them to go to remote parts, not tourist parts, but I am going to call the doctor tomorrow.

    Thanks again. x

    Just spoken to the nurse at my doctors surgery and she said that although the jabs are advised, they are not necessary if you are careful and that pregnant women cannot have them as there is no research as to what harm they might do the baby. So I have been told to stay away from salad, fruit, shellfish and undercooked food (which I would anyway). Apparantly, most people don't even bother to get them. So I can get excited about my holiday again now - YIPEE!!
