Re: plz help

Yeah, sure. There's a problem if the mother is having an attack at the time of the birth - but that's dealt with by her having a cesarian.

Congratulations for the wedding.

Re: plz help

As far as I understand.. The baby wont be in any danger UNLESS your wife has an active infection when she gives birth because the infection is transmitted as the child moves through the birth canal. IF this would happen, they take the baby by c-section (to avoid the birth canal and transmission) to prevent blindness. Other than that I don't ever recall hearing anything negative about one or two herpes parents giving birth. Good Luck!

I've since read that it can be dangerous (to the baby) when the mother first contracts herpes during her last trimester. Just wanted to let you know.
