Talk with your doctor about this. Sometimes any doctor will answer a general question like this.

In the past, rubella caught by a pregnant woman was dangerous, and usually fatal, for a fetus. One actress, Gene Tierney, lost a baby to the virus many years ago. There was a vacine given for rubella for many years to help prevent this.

vaccine against rubella became available in 1969. In the 20 years following the introduction of the vaccine, reported rubella cases dropped 99.6%.
