My mother was just diagnosed with Hepatitis C. She takes care of my infant while I work. What precautions should we take to make sure that my little one does not contract this awful disease?

There is no risk to your baby. Your mother just needs to cover a cut if she bleeds so no blood is exposed to your baby.
