Perinatal Hep B Prevention Program
If you have recently learned that you have Hepatitis B and are planning to have a child, the Perinatal Hepatitis B Prevention Program (PHBPP) is here to help protect your baby and others from Hepatitis B.
The program provides case management for infants born to mothers who test positive for Hepatitis B at the time of delivery in order to help stop the transmission of the disease. The Hepatitis B virus can be spread to a baby during childbirth.
If you have any questions, contact your Healthcare Provider or the PHBPP at 210.207.2088.
For additional information on how to protect your baby from Hepatitis B, please see Protect Your Baby for Life: When a Pregnant Woman Has Hepatitis B from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
