No. However if the guy was having an outbreak (blisters) at the time of intercourse, then chances are high of contracting the virus.
She should be sure to tell doctors of possible contact. Docs will check for outbreak at time of delivery and decide between natural and c-section. A c-section will prevent the baby from contact with outbreak.
