Can I transmit a yeast infection to my unborn baby? The answer is yes. Many children are born with a variety of conditions inherited from their mothers. Therefore, it is essential to exercise caution. It is commendable for expecting mothers to address any vaginal issues, especially in the second or third trimester, making the birthing process smoother and safer for both mother and child.
Another medical concern is genital herpes. There’s a possibility for mothers with an active genital herpes condition to transmit it to their newborn during childbirth. While a child is still in the womb, the likelihood of contracting a yeast infection from the mother is relatively low. The protective environment of the womb offers a degree of safety for the unborn child. Nonetheless, if a mother has an active vaginal yeast infection during delivery, there’s a possibility of transmission to the baby. However, the risks remain minimal if the child is still undelivered.
In our book, Candida Crusher, we delve into these topics in greater detail, offering insights and advice for those concerned about yeast infections and other related conditions.
