  • Description:
    Rubella is a viral infection that spreads in airborne droplets when people sneeze or cough. If a woman gets rubella while pregnant—especially in her first 3 months—serious consequences can result, including iscarriages, fetal deaths, still births, and congenital rubella syndrome (CRS). Rubella virus is an important cause of severe birth defects.

    A woman infected with rubella during the first 3 months of pregnancy has up to a 90% chance of giving birth to a baby with congenital rubella syndrome. Or her baby may not survive.
