Hepatitis B Guidelines for Pregnant Women What is hepatitis B? Hepatitis B is the most common serious liver infection in the world. It is caused by the hepatitis B virus (HBV) that attacks liver cells and can lead to liver failure, cirrhosis (scarring) or cancer of the liver later in life Perinatal HBV transmission can be prevented by identifying HBV-infected (i.e., hepatitis B surface antigen [HBsAg]-positive) pregnant women and providing hepatitis B immune globulin and hepatitis B vaccine to their infants within 12 hours of birth Therefore, the Hepatitis B Foundation strongly recommends that health care professionals properly administer the birth dose of the hepatitis B vaccine immediately in the delivery room to avoid any delays or mistakes
An HBV DNA level greater than 200,000 IU/mL or 1 million cp/ml indicates a level where the combination of the birth dose of the hepatitis B vaccine (and HBIG) will fail. First-line, antiviral therapy with tenofovir (TDF/viread) is recommended starting from week 28 of pregnancy until delivery but may continue 3 months postpartum . 1,9 ** The HPV vaccination in pregnancy is not recommended, however, inadvertent HPV vaccination during pregnancy is not associated with adverse events for th Hepatitis B vaccination is recommended for infants and children in a 4-dose schedule at birth, and 2, 4 and 6 months of age in Australia and at birth, 6 weeks and 5 months of age in New Zealand. 8 Hepatitis B vaccination is recommended for all other risk groups, usually in a 3-dose schedule (0, 1 and 6 months).

Chronic infection occurs in the majority. Hepatitis B vaccine is a vaccine that prevents hepatitis B.
