Response from Dr. McGovern

The key thing is for you to be vaccinated against HBV if you have never been exposed. Then you won't be able to pass any virus onto your next baby if you are protected from infection.

Your husband can certainly hug and kiss the baby. That is not an issue.

I would recommend that you have safe sex until you know you are protected from HBV through the vaccine. You can also check blood tests to see if you are already protected from prior immunization or prior infection that cleared.

Is Atripla good choice for a Hepatitis C & HIV coinfection Patient?
