In brief: Usually nothing

High risk hpv types are not associated with any problems during vaginal delivery.
Hpv 11, which causes warts can cause a rare condition in babies if they are exposed to the vaginal or cervical warts during delivery. Talk to your doctor if you are concerned about this.

In brief: Probably nothing

While hpv can be transmitted to the baby during a vaginal delivery - it is rare enough that there is no recommendation to void vaginal delivery even when infected with the high risk strains of hpv.
