Hi My wife is 6 months pregnant and she is having cough from last 1 week. Will it affect my baby? Baby can suffer from pneumonia? Please reply.

Hi, it won't affect the baby just like that. Baby is inside the uterus in a safe place. But straining due to cough can have some impact. Ask your wife to do steam inhalation ,salt water warm water gargling and breathing exercises. If not relieved consult a physician.
