In brief: Stay away from virus
As long as the baby is kept away from the chickenpox virus and anyone who has chickenpox, he/she will not get chickenpox.
Newborns are too young to receive the chickenpox vaccine.

In brief: A few
If mom had chickenpox then she could pass that immunity to the baby.
Keeping your baby away from potential exposures to infected people.
