Re: We have the flu and Im delivering via CS in 5 days!HELP!

Agree with the others; I would postpone. Baby could be a little early and that increases the changes that he would catch an infection, and also babies born by c section have compromised immune systems because of being initially colonized with hospital bacteria vs mom's vaginal flora during birth. I am not criticizing, just pointing out afact that I think makes it better to wait until everyone feels be tter.
Sorry for the typos; typing on my phone is crazy difficult today!
