Our expert says:
Natural mumps infection during pregnancy has not been associated with an increased risk of premature delivery or birth defects. However, mumps infections during the first trimester may increase the rate of miscarriages. Birth defects have rarely been reported among children of women who had mumps while they were pregnant, but mumps has not been proven to be the cause of the defects.
