sorry...got bit off the q then no thrush cannot affect an unborn baby and even if the babe gets it when born its not a major thing infact my midwife said its common

It won't harm your unborn baby.And there is no serious risk.It just SUCKS when a newborn gets thrush. Tell your doctor. If you are far in your pregnancy, it would be best to get it treated right away. Babies get thrush in their mouths really easily and it is very common. Its most likely pa__sed on from the mother during a v____al birth. But they can pick it up anywhere as well,as it's bacterial infection.My son got it just a few wks ago, and it sucks bad...he was really cranky and it's quite a bit uncomfortable for them. Its also kind of hard to get rid of. Antibiotics are used to treat it, but sometimes it takes awhile to go away.
