In brief: Fairly easily
As long as fluid precautions are followed, and the mother has not serconverted, the child should be okay.
Have him checked at age 1 year.

In brief: Difficult
As it is a blood borne virus, there would have to be contact with dad's blood (or other body fluids possibly) for any spread.
