New findings from the University of Florida show severe flu during pregnancy can be dangerous -- not just for the expectant mothers, but their developing babies as well.
The research looked at over 3,000 pregnant women during the 2009 flu season. It found women who got the flu were at a higher risk of delivering early and having low birth weight babies.
Experts say if you're pregnant, get the flu shot.
