Via Reuters, more evidence appears on the risk factors for pregnant woman when it comes to H1N1.

" New research from Australia confirms that the HIN1 flu hits pregnant women particularly hard-especially if they have asthma, obesity or diabetes."

"This finding underscores the importance of education regarding recommendations for vaccination in pregnancy and the need for rapid testing and earlier use of antivirals in suspected influenza," Dr. Michelle L. Giles of Monash Medical Center in Clayton, Victoria, and her colleagues write.
