is hep c passed during pregnacy and child birth
Response from Dr. McGovern
Hepatitis C can be passed to the baby but uncommonly - about 5 percent of the time.
Even if the virus is passed to the baby, many still clear the virus.
If the virus persists, children can be treated with interferon and tolerate the treatment much better than adults!
