Whether you recently have been diagnosed with hepatitis C or have been living with it for some time, the team at Norton Infectious Diseases Institute can answer your questions and help you during your treatment journey. Our goal is to make sure you know what to expect when you’re expecting and that you and your family have the answers you need.
Because the hepatitis C virus can be transmitted to the baby during pregnancy or delivery, patients who are diagnosed with hepatitis C before becoming pregnant should seek and complete treatment prior to conceiving.
Norton Healthcare has been screening pregnant patients for hepatitis C since 2016. In 2018, our team supported lawmakers to pass legislation to help Kentucky become the first state to implement hepatitis C screening in all pregnant patients during their first prenatal visit.
If you are pregnant and have an active hepatitis C infection, our team at Norton Infectious Diseases Specialists can help you create a personalized treatment plan for postpartum follow-up and provide important prenatal education designed to support overall health for the mother and developing baby.
Norton Infectious Diseases Institute provides a compassionate environment that supports you and answers your questions every step of the way to make sure you fully understand your prenatal monitoring and postpartum treatment options.
Patients diagnosed with hepatitis C during pregnancy, or pregnant with a known hepatitis C infection, should see a doctor who specializes in treating this infection during their pregnancy.

Norton Infectious Diseases Specialists will work with you to develop a monitoring and treatment plan for your unique needs. Typically, pregnant patients will have the following steps as part of their treatment plan:
