I would like to know if there is anyone who have healthy babies even after having HSV positive? 

I would like to know from our community that how they are managing and keeping there babies safe from herpes?

Hello! The fear of harming my newborn almost kept me from marriage and having children! However, my strong desire to be a mother forced me to learn all I could. I also talked to my OBGYN for practical steps that are taken during pregnancy and delivery. I was assured if there was an outbreak a C-section would be done. I was diligent and hyper sensitive to any signs of an outbreak as my due date grew close. In the delivery room my doctor was rather non-plus saying the risks of harm are very low but reasonable precautions would be taken. I think I was the only one worried! Both my daughters, born two years apart, were born healthy and delivered via natural childbirth. I think this article presents the facts the best. https://www.ashasexualhealth.org/herpes-and-pregnancy/

Don’t let herpes prevent you from experiencing giving birth and the joys of raising a child. Both my daughters remain healthy and happy.
