Hep b

I am seeking professional opinion with HepB and pregnancy. My sister,
who will be my gestational surrogate, and I both inherit HepB from our
parents. My fertility doctor is trying to figure out if we could go
through the surrogate process and wanted to get clearance from a MFM
specialist because he believes that the my sister could pass HepB to
baby.  He doesnt know much about HepB & pregnancy and suggested we
talk to a FMF.  I have talked to a Gastroenterologist and they stated
that there will be shots given to baby within hours after birth to
prevent transmission of HepB.  I'm seeking professional opinion of a
MFM specalist to see if clearence would even be possible.  I'm
desparate and do not want to waste a doctors time with other patients
if getting clearance is impossible.  My question is, if I were having
a consultation with you, would you give us clearance to proceed with
surrogate process?  if not, what suggustion do you have to get
clearance.
Any advice you have would greatly be appreciated.


Thank you for your time!

see here to get knowledge about hbv
http://www.medhelp.org/health_pages/list?cid=153

check all tests needed and make them, the baby can still be infected despite vaccine if hbe is pos and hbvdna very high, oher in this community has started hbv treatment which cannot be stopped probably for life in order to lower hbv and prevent transmission as close as possible to 100%

hbv eradication is not possible but according to the phase of infection and if virus is active and making damage it is better to start treatment
