In brief: Ruptured membranes

Chlamydia passes by direct contact, so if your bag of waters broke before you went into labor or the amniotic sac actually got infected by the bacteria (less common), then the infection could be transmitted to the baby even with a c-section delivery.
Best to get the chlamydia treated, document cure, and treat partners to prevent re-infection.
