Rare but deadly. This disease is uncommon but can occur in women who have had herpes and are shedding the virus around the time of delivery. It can be hard to tell when you rarely have outbreaks. Some women choose to have a scheduled c-section delivery to reduce the risk.
Understand. This can be a severe and devastating illness. Pray that your baby will get better quickly without much damage. Talk to your doctors, minister, friends, family and get some emotional support. Wish you well and my heartfelt sympathy..
