What if pregnant woman is hepatitis B+?
Response from Dr. McGovern
If a women is hepatitis B surface antigen positive, she needs further evaluation of her hepatitis B blood testing to see if she has virus in her bloodstream. If so, a discussion of the possible use of lamivudine during pregnancy should occur with the physician. However, the most important issue is that the baby will need hepatitis B immunization to prevent transmission. This is very effective.
