In brief: Immunoglobulin

You should have your liver tests monitored during pregnancy.
Your baby will be given an hepatitis b immunoglobulin shot as well as the Hepatitis B Vaccine to minimize the chances of the baby getting it at birth. Whether you breastfeed your baby will depend on what you decide after talking to your pediatrician.
