Should I update my vaccines before I try to become pregnant?

It is generally advisable to be up to date with all your vaccinations before trying to conceive. However, it is important to do so in consultation with your doctor, because some vaccines can cause complications for your baby. Although some vaccinations can be given in pregnancy, certain other vaccinations require you to wait a month before trying to conceive.
