Can a pregnant physiotherapist continue working with chronically infected CF-Patients?

Ladies and Gentlemen,
I work as physiotherapist with CF-patients. Currently, I am in my 3rd week of pregnancy.
Some of my patients are chronically infected with CF-pathogens like MRSA and Burkholderia cepacia. My present MRSA precautions are mouth protection, smock, hood, and gloves; with Cepacia smock and gloves.
My questions are: Can I carry on working with chronically infected CF-Patients, are those precautions sufficient and are there specific recommendations to protect mother and embryo child?
I would be pleased to receive a clear answer to this very delicate affair ASAP. Thank you in advance,
