In brief: Absolutely
The chance of passing the virus to the newborn is extremely small if the baby receives the appropriate vaccinations at birth.

In brief: Yes
Recommendations for an infant born to a hepatitis b positive mother include a Hepatitis B Vaccine shortly after delivery along with a dose of Hepatitis B Immune Globulin given at the same time in a different site.
Then the child should finish the hepatitis b immunization series. If you follow those guidelines, the child should be okay.
