  • They should do a c-section if you have herpes, cause that can cause the baby to go blind or worse

  • If you had Herpes before you became pregnant it is very likely you could have a vaginal delivery they only recommend c-sections if you have an active outbreak during delivery or if you've been expose to it during your pregnancy. People with HIV and Herpes give birth to healthy babies everyday. May God bless you and good luck...

  • My sister has three kids, the third she found out she had herpes. And she is happy and healthy, she is now pregnant again and baby is also fine. C sections isnt required unless you have a break out around/ during the time of delivery.
