Hepatitis B: Hepatitis b can be a serious infection of your liver. At birth children get the vaccine to protect them for life hopefully. Hepatitis b is mostly spread by contact with blood or body fluids but on rare occasions in children with parents who have active hepatitis in can spread to the children. Hepatitis b infection is also important because by having it you can have liver cancer later in life. Thw.

Hep b prevention: Women who become pregnant will get tested for hepatitis b. If you find out if you have an active infection with hepatitis b, is not in the world for your pregnancy because any neonatal exposure can be prevented and treated with antibodies given afterbirth and vaccines.
