Yes ,you can pass borellia as well as other infections on to your unborn child.EBV and other virus as well as mycoplasma can carry on thru the generations.How pathogenic some of these are like the herpes virus that causes fever blisters and such well alot of that is being hotly debated now.

But most important borellia (lyme) is a serious illness.I have heard there are many strains in this country.Im sick and so is my daughter I wasnt fortunate enough to have found this site sooner but I still made it here and bottom line we are much improved.If you or someone you know suspects they have lyme and are pregnant,post again and read the material suggested .Consult a lyme literate doctor youll be glad you did.Best Wishes and Blessings RG

Recently positive, sending out testing now for my children.

If they test positive, it would explain a lot.

Question is, at what point is lyme considered under control enough to risk a pregnancy.

BTW, don't know if lyme-related or not, but no one else has found a different possible cause--I had premature labor in all my pregnancies, and needed to be on bedrest.
