How likely is it to pass high risk HPV on to your baby during a vaginal delivery?

In brief: Extremely low

The risk is extremely low except in very rare cases.
Hpv is not an issue for vaginal delivery. Having hpv does not exclude you from having a vaginal delivery and having a c section because of hpv is not recommended.

The low risk wart strains can occasionally pass during a vaginal delivery, remain undetected for an extended period & cause genital or vocal cord warts up to 2 yrs of age. We have not seen evidence of non-wart strain transfer to newborns.
