I am a little worried....my 15 year old son has been to a farm today with his college, we live in rural Devon and are surrounded by sheep. I didnt know that he would be up close while the sheep were lambing! I know that pregnant women are not supposed to have contact with lambing sheep, so as soon as I found out I made my son put his clothes straight in the washing machine and go and have a bath. They were smearing the afterbirth of one sheep onto another who had given birth to a dead lamb so that that one of the lambs could feed from that sheep. I have looked on the internet and it says contact with a dead lamb can be the most dangerouse. I am slightly more worried as my immune system is weak due to an auto immune illness I have. Has anyone any experience of being pregnant and contact with sheep?
