Can your baby get chlamydia if you had it, but got it treated, while pregnant?

In brief: No

Chlamydia is transferred to your baby during delivery, not while in the uterus.
Your baby cannot get chlamydia if you were treated. If your partner was not treated and you had sex with him, you could get reinfected and that would put your baby at risk again. Both of you need to be treated at the same time.
