Hi there,
Lymes disease is not contagious and cannot be spread from person to person. But precautions should be taken to prevent spread of the illness through modes of transmission like blood transfusion. Transmission of Lyme’s from a pregnant woman to her unborn child may occur but proven cases are rare. It does not cause any birth defects or fetal death. It is best to consult a gynecologist and disclose about your husband’s illness. A general examination and assurance will help.
Take care and regards!
