Hepatitis B & pregnancy


I am 5 months and 3 weeks pregnant.

There is a man working in the same office as I do. He have Hepatitis B. Could my baby be in danger? How do you get this disease and what is it? He looked very yellow, like he has jaundice.

I am very worried about the health my baby.

Hepatitis B is very infectious and can be dangerous for the pregnancy. You should stay away from him as it can be transmitted through droplets that can be transferred if you are close to the person.
