Dear Bob:
Good question.
A man who fathers a child cannot pass the hepatitis C infection to a child before or at the time of birth.  there is a small chance that a man could give the virus to a woman through sex and a small chance that the woman could pass the virus to the child.  
I hope this information is helpful to you.  If you have any additional questions or concerns, you can post them through MEDHELP or contact us directly at Henry Ford.  The direct number to our liver clinic is: (313) 916-8865.  At Henry Ford, we have a very active group of hepatologists with a strong interest in the care and research of hepatitis C.
