Medical Definition of Mumps in pregnancy
Mumps in pregnancy: Mumps contracted in pregnancy, which can cause early miscarriage or birth defects. The most common birth defect associated with mumps is congenital deafness. Mumps vaccination is not recommended during or shortly before pregnancy because it is a live attenuated vaccine, so carries a risk of causing mumps infection.
