Rarely if ever: I have never seen it happen in three decades and more than 3000 newborns, many of which had some jaundice. The fetus can acquire any infection the mother suffers that has a blood phase & this includes things like chickenpox, herpes, CMV and others. They can also develop a neo-natal infection in the first 4 weeks that could delay liver clearance of common jaundice.
