PREGNANCY, LYME & TICK BORNE DISEASES

Reports are mixed- some are good, and some studies show less than favorable outcomes for children born to mothers who have Lyme and/or other tick borne diseases.  Concerns have also been raised about infected Lyme mothers passing the Lyme organism (spirochete) to their infant while breast feeding.
