What is the risk of transferring hepititis C from mother to infant?

Best answer

A recent meta-analysis estimated that the vertical transmission rate of mother-to-child is 5.8%, indicating that more than one in every 20 children delivered by HCV-seropositive women could be infected [1]. The risk is higher if the mother is co-infected with HIV [2].
