There are three types of mother to child infections infant infection in which the baby is infected in the abdomen, birth canal infection which is transmitted when the baby begins to pass through the birth canal, and breast milk infection . In most cases, certain infections during pregnancy can make the mother more severe, and the infection can affect the baby in the abdomen.
