What would you like to do?
Deformities are caused in the first few weeks of pregnancy almost before the woman even knows she is pregnant. There are so many things that can cause deformity and flu medication is not among them that I doubt there is a claim.

I'm guessing by that you mean a relative? Yeah, the child is bound to have some defects because the genes are too similar, and the mutations that an individual has …(and therefore will have possibly been inherited) will be doubled in their offspring.
the doctors that take care of babies is called a pediatrician. you could get mixed up with a nurse and a pediatrician but the difference is that a nurse doesn't only take care… of babies and kids. they can take care of any size.
If a woman is pregnant and she has the swine flu will the baby inside of her catch the swine flu too?
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in the US have released information for pregnant and breastfeeding women, a link is provided below in the related links section.… It is as yet unknown what, if any, effects the Novel H1N1 influenza virus will have on a fetus. The information referenced above gives these guidelines for what to do if you are pregnant and get symptoms of the "2009 Swine Flu": * If there is H1N1 flu in your community pay extra attention to your body and how you are feeling. * If you get sick with flu-like symptoms, stay home, limit contact with others, and call your doctor. Your doctor will decide if testing or treatment is needed. Tests may include a nasal swab which is best to do within the first 4-5 days of getting sick. Like regular flu, H1N1 flu may make other medical problems worse. * If you are alone at any time, have someone check in with you often if you are feeling ill. This is always a good idea. * If you have close contact with someone who has H1N1 flu or is being treated for exposure to H1N1 flu, contact your doctor to discuss whether you need treatment to reduce your chances of getting the flu. Symptoms of the Novel H1N1 Influenza virus are: # Coughing # Headaches # Body Aches # Vomiting # Diarrhea # Sneezing # Runny Nose # Fever -over or at 101F about 41C If you think you have the swine flu and have high fever, chest pain, are short of breath, or get sudden dizziness, and, especially if you also live in an area were it has been discovered, you should seek medical attention. Your doctor will determine if you need to be treated with an anti-viral medication. CDC recommends taking Acetaminophen (Tylenol) for fever. For the anti-viral medications that could lessen or stop your symptoms more quickly to be effective, they must be given quickly (within two days of the first symptoms). The effects of antiviral drugs in pregnant women or their babies, are not established yet, but no serious side effects have been reported. If you are given these drugs and believe you are having a side effect, call your doctor immediately.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) when encouraging the use of vaccines by pregnant women: In addition to protecting her from in…fection, infants less than 6 months old will not be able to be vaccinated so it is recommended that everyone who lives with or provides care for infants less than 6 months of age receive both the seasonal influenza vaccine and 2009 H1N1 influenza monovalent vaccine to provide protection for the infant. Before the baby is born the immune system of the mother will protect the baby, see related questions below about the safety of the A-H1N1/09 vaccine for pregnant women. Once the baby is born, the protection it will have will be by not going out in public where it can be exposed to crowded situations and be put at risk as well as by having all people in the household, especially those who give direct care to the infant vaccinated so they can't get it and pass it on to the infant. See the related question below also about the advantages of vaccination to the mother of babies who are breastfeeding, another way to protect the newborns.
Nothing. Even the best antiviral drugs around today can only slightly reduce the infection time, usually only by a day or two.
