    It's been revealed two unborn babies died after their mothers caught the measles during the current outbreak

    It's been revealed two unborn babies died after their mothers caught the measles during the current outbreak


    Auckland Health authorities have confirmed five pregnant women have had measles - with two of them losing their foetuses.

    So far this year there have been nearly 16-hundred cases nationwide, with just over 13-hundred of those in Auckland.

    Immunisation Advisory Centre director Dr Nikki Turner says there needs to be a national campaign.

    She says the campaign would try to find people who have not had the appropriate vaccination and offer it to them.
