In brief: Possible infection

In pregnancy if a mom has chlamydia during pregnancy then there is an increased risk of passing infection to infant during pregnancy and after birth.
Can also infect infant's eyes causing blindness and also this may increase risk of premature rupture of membranes as well as miscarriage in mom. Fortunately, moms are routinely screened in prenatal care by ob's and infection is easily treated
