"Chances of transmission if attempted vaginal delivery becomes c-sectio"
 
   I'm curious on how likely it is to transmit HSVII to an infant during delivery - when ultimately delivering by C-section?

My water broke about 24 hours before my daughter was born - long story short, labor progressed fine but then she was turned a funky way and would not turn herself, so after 4 hours of pushing, I ended up having a C-section.

In situations like this, is the baby exposed at all to HSVII? I wasn't sure. She was heads down and her head may have passed through my cervix (I know I was at a +1 and couldn't progress any further) but the rest of her body remained in my uterus until the C-section.

I guess I'm stressing out a bit because this morning when I went to change her (she's now 10 days old and thriving), I noticed a few tiny little pimples on her vagina and one on her thigh. They do not look ANYTHING like what I experienced with HSVII, so I'm sure I'm overreacting, but as I was stressing over it this morning, it made me wonder if she could have even exposed based on her method of delivery?

I was taking 1000mg Valtrex daily for weeks up to her birth, as well.

Thanks for any info/guidance that others may have!

It's overall a low risk.

this doesn't sound at all like a neonatal herpes rash.

The first step in stopping the perceived stigma about genital herpes - is to stop believing in it yourself
