Hello, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com
Chickenpox or varicella is an infectious disease caused by the varicella zooster virus. This disease will be characterized by the appearance of a rash in the form of red bumps filled with fluid that spreads throughout the body accompanied by a burning sensation. Chickenpox virus is easily transmitted through saliva splashes, as well as direct contact with fluids from rashes. Pregnant women are one group of people who are at risk of contracting the virus, namely pregnant women who have never suffered from this disease and have not been vaccinated. As for pregnant women who have suffered from this disease or have undergone vaccination, the body has an immune system against the varicella zooster virus, so that it generally does not experience chickenpox again when exposed to the virus, except if it has a weakened immune system, such as in people with HIV or AIDS, after undergoing chemotherapy or radio therapy.
Therefore, consume healthy and nutritious food, so that your immune system is strong against every germ that causes disease that enters the body. Also consume vitamins regularly by your obstetrician. Don't forget to consume milk at least a glass a day to supplement your nutritional needs.
Thus hopefully useful.
