Response from Dr. McGovern

I can't tell how infectious you are to others, because I don't know if your hepatitis B DNA is detectable.

No matter what, your fiance should get vaccinated against hepatitis B to protect against infection.

You can have a healthy baby - the baby will need to be vaccinated as well to prevent infection. You must discuss your Hepatitis B infection with your obstetrician.
