Re: before I panic...
Hi meemerdoodle. Do you think you may have been infected during pregnancy? If so, you should have your children evaluated by a knowledgeable doctor.
Yes, Lyme disease can be passed through pregnancy and breastfeeding. It is my understanding that a woman who has Lyme is advised to wait at least six months of being symptom free before trying to get pregnant. It is also advisable for her to take a safe antibiotic throughout the pregnancy and not breastfeed to minimize transmission.
