    I have been thinking on this for some time. for this I have collected some data. I have heared that some female animals are born pregnant. but want to know wether there is anybody (human) who is immune to most of following diseases at the time of his birth. If this is not possible than can we manipulate to vaccinate a baby inside womb.

    According to this, vaccinating the mother can protect the baby for the first few months of its life.

    Vaccinations during pregnancy

    Some infections can harm you and your baby during pregnancy. This is why vaccinations are so important. They help protect your body from infection. You pass this protection to your baby during pregnancy. This helps keep your baby safe during the first few months of life until he gets his own vaccinations.

    It is possible to vaccinate the mother as she will pass on her antibodies to her foetus through the placenta like everything else but the immunity won't last like a direct vaccination.

    Actually many things such as blood are blocked by a placental barrier to protect the fetus. It starts to break down in the final weeks before birth, which might be the only opportunity to administer antibodies to both mother and child.

    Right, and I was thinking -- while the OP merely asked if it was possible, and as it appears the effects of the vaccinations would diminish rapidly anyway (so it already wouldn't have much of a purpose) -- what would be the point? Doesn't the mother already provide a number of antibodies after the barrier breaks down, and then continues to do so (if the infant is breastfed)?

    That seems to be a question we could ask of nearly all precious's questions.
