A:If both you and your wife are Hep B positive, there is a chance that your baby will also be positive. This however depends upon the further serological status of each parent and you should consult a specialist (gastroenterologist) who can guide you further.Regarding your baby, the risk of becoming Hep B positive can be decreased, if soon after birth, specific gamma globulin and Hep B vaccination are given. Your babys neonatologist (after birth) will give you specific advice on this.
