If a mother and father both have genital herpes, what are the chances of their new baby having it?

If a mother and father both have genital herpes, what are the chances of their new baby having it?

Manageable risks: If a mother delivers vaginally with her first genital outbreak, there is ~30% risk the baby could get it and have a terrible illness. If a recurrent outbreak, this drops to ~4% but suppression of outbreaks or c-section delivery before the membranes are open 4 hours can cancel the risk.

If a mother has a history of genital herpes, what are the odds of a baby having birth defects both for c-section and vaginal birth?

If a mother has a history of genital herpes, what are the odds of a baby having birth defects both for c-section and vaginal birth?

Varies: Birth defects are not an issue with maternal herpes. The baby is at risk of a severe infection from the germ. The risk period begins with the opening of the bag of waters if mom is actively shedding the virus during a recognized or silent outbreak. The germ can travel into babies system & lay dormant for a while or immediately cause infection. A c-section before labor starts can avoid the risk. ...Read more

My 89 year old mother fell and they are saying she has a slight dislocation of pelvis, is this possible or am I hearing the doctor wrong?

My 89 year old mother fell and they are saying she has a slight dislocation of pelvis, is this possible or am I hearing the doctor wrong?
