Flu during pregnancy

Pregnant women run a greater risk of getting complications with the flu, such a pneumonia, because pregnant women usually have a decreased resistance due to the pregnancy.


Are you pregnant? Then it is quite possible that you will get the flu during your pregnancy. 

Flu symptoms

There is a good chance that you have been hit by the flu virus if you have the following symptoms:

  • fever
  • muscle ache
  • headache
  • sore throat
  • dry cough
  • shivers
  • feeling miserable and bad

You should stay in bed and rest. Pregnant women run a greater risk of getting complications of the flu, such a pneumonia, because pregnancy decreases resistance.


Thankfully, Echinaforce is perfectly safe during pregnancy.
Echinaforce contain proven effective ingredients which reinforce the immune system. Hereby the resistance increases against bacterial and viral infections. You are less likely to be sick, and if you do, you recover more quickly! More info

More tips for the flu!

Please follow this general advice:

  • Wash your hands regularly with soap and water and avoid touching your mouth, nose and eyes. Washing your hands before and after coughing, sneezing and blowing your nose is important.
  • Dry your hands with a dry and clean towel, warm air or a dry and clean piece of paper towel. It is important that you use the materials to dry your hands with only once.
  • Keep your elbow or tissue on your mouth if you sneeze or cough. Do not sneeze or cough in the direction of someone else. Turn your head away and bend your head.
  • Use paper tissues when coughing, sneezing or blowing your nose and use them only once. Throw them in the bin afterwards. Used handkerchiefs or tissues in a pocket infect the hands every time they are touched.
  • Clean objects such as doorknobs regularly. Also think about cleaning toys that come into contact with sick children. Use an all-purpose cleaner and lukewarm water. Rinse with clean water and let them air dry.
  • Wash bed linens regularly and if necessary plush toys at 60°C.
  • Ventilate living and sleeping areas. Always keep the air vents open a little bit or leave the window ajar.
