Hepatitis B is a serious disease caused by the hepatitis B virus (HBV). HBV attacks the liver and can lead to death from liver failure and liver cancer. Hepatitis B can be spread from an infected mother to her child at birth. Most newborns who become infected with HBV do not get sick at first, but they have a 90 percent chance of developing lifelong infection. Hepatitis B is preventable with a very safe and effective vaccine. You can protect your baby by making sure hepatitis B vaccine is given soon after birth.
