My name is Alexandra,I am 34 years old and I am from Romania.I hope you can help me with a medical opinion in the next issue:
I am infected with the hepatitis B virus and I am expecting my second baby who will come in 2 weeks.
My blood tests made in the 7th month of pregnancy showed the following:
ADN-HBV 3110 UI/ml(3.49 log)
AST/TGO 22 UI/ml
My baby will receive Immunoglobulin and anti hepatitis B vaccine at birth.
Is it safe to breastfeed my child if I use breast shields and avoid nipple cracking?
I mention that I didn't breastfeed my first child 3 years ago.My ADN HVB was about 60000 UI then,and the doctors didn't allowed me to breastfeed.
