"I'm very concerned," said Jeanne Fuller, mother of Adam, 5, and Sam, 3, and 30 weeks pregnant with her third child. "I admit when I heard that pregnant women were at higher risk, especially late in pregnancy, I panicked. I ran to the store to get antibacterial everything.

"I tell all of my patients to be sure to wash their hands - they just can't do it enough. And for those who might be at high-risk or need longer protection than just a few minutes, I recommend using washes with 4 percent CHG since it kills germs for hours. That's what we have been using in our facility for years and we continue to use it to protect us," said Smith.
