Dear Member,
Thanks for the query. you are right in asking about the TT shots. All women in their pregnancy have to be immunised against tetanus by administration of 2 tetanus toxoid shots 4 weeks apart. you have not mentioned whether it is her 1st or second pregnancy. If it is her second pregnancy and within 5 years of the 1st baby then only one TT shot given at 7 months is fine.
Hopefully this answers your query.
Thanks.
Dr Bhagyashree.
