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.
Babies can get Lyme disease from their mother during pregnancy and through breastfeeding. They can have many different symptoms. Getting treated throughout the pregnancy and not breastfeeding can minimize treatment.
It is advised for the woman who has had Lyme to be symptom free for at least six months before trying to get pregnant.
If you are fully recovered from Lyme when you get pregnant, I think the chances of your baby being healthy would be excellent.
