In brief: Typically none

Hpv itself will not harm your pregnancy.
If you have developed genital warts from hpv, they often grow rapidly during pregnancy and can potentially cause obstruction to a vaginal delivery. If hpv has caused cervical abnormalities like dysplasia, you may need further evaluation of your cervix.

In brief: Usually none

Hpv can rarely affect a baby by exposure during the birth.
The risk is low enough that there is no recommendation to avoid vaginal delivery even with obvious hpv.
