Hi,

One of the girls in my office has just been told by the doctor that she has Mumps are my babies at risk if I get it?

Have you had them yourself? If yes then risk is reduced but I would still avoid her. If you haven't then def. avoid her!!! In a nice way!!!

I'm not a nurse but found the following information on NHS Direct

Pregnant women who develop mumps in the first 3 months of pregnancy (the first trimester) have a slightly higher risk of miscarriage, but there is no evidence that mumps can cause deformities in an unborn child.

Hope this helps.

And if she has mumps she should stay at home anyway, so as not to put others at risk, lets hope she does.
I'm sure you'll be fine!
