Hello. Although chickenpox often occurs in children, it can also occur in adults, including pregnant women. Symptoms of chickenpox will usually appear 14-16 days from the first day of exposure to the virus. People with chickenpox can then continue to spread it until the rash dries up. Most pregnant women who get chickenpox can recover without any effects, but sometimes chickenpox can cause side effects for pregnant women and the baby they are carrying. For pregnant women, chickenpox can cause infection in the form of inflammation such as pneumonia, while for babies in the womb it can also cause infections in babies in the womb. For chickenpox that occurs at 28-36 weeks of gestation, the virus will enter the baby's body with the possibility of not causing any symptoms. However, there is a risk that the virus will reactivate and trigger shingles in the first few years of the baby's life. If you are currently in the recovery period (there are no more bubbles of fluid, the fever has subsided, and the body rash has subsided) it is hoped that the mother will increase her immune system by regulating nutritious food on a regular basis and getting adequate rest. If you have any doubts, it is best to check with a gynecologist to get a more detailed examination and more appropriate treatment.
