Do you use essential oils? Get a diffuser and use antibacterial/viral oils in the house- lavender, eucalyptus, red thyme, or tea tree oil in diffuser to disinfect the space, reduce chances you'l lall get sick. Or if you are unsure using oils on your own, I think young living oils has a mix for such occasions called Thieves. I always use lavender in hospital births cause of all the weird germs- its powerful and relaxing....
Otherwise, I bet you hold out till she's better. Astragalus herb tincture, Echinacea herb tea or tincture, vit c, and zinc are safe to build immunity, and elderberry syrup reduces the length of a viral illness (and tastes great, good for kids).
Also had a case recently where a two year old got his 2 week old sister sick and she was cleared up totally in two days after an accupuncture treatment (a good accupuncturist can treat babies, not with needles, don't fret! )
Get welll, and happy birthing....Heidi
