In brief: Very unlikely

With proper hand hygiene, transmitting HSV ii (genital herpes virus) to an infant would be very unlikely.

In brief: Yes if not careful

Genital herpes is a communicable disease.
If there are open sores then there's a possibility that they can be spread to your child via contact of any kind. Follow proper hand washing protocols and avoid coming in contact with open sores.
