Why is it important to check if I''ve had German Measles (rubella)?

Immunity to rubella (German measles) is checked by a blood antibody test, usually before you get pregnant. If you catch it in early pregnancy, it will often lead on to blindness, heart defects and mental retardation in babies depending on how early on you catch it. As it is so preventable, and the consequences of catching it in pregnancy so severe, most schoolgirls are automatically vaccinated for it.
