Thanks for writing in.
Chemotherapeutic agents ( particularly anti cancer
drugs) can severely suppress the immune system. If the person recieving chemotherapy
is currently experiencing an infection, it is possible that this may be transmitted to the baby. However, if there is no such infection, then the child is at no risk at all.
However, it must be remembered that women receiving chemotherapy should not breastfeed their children as the drugs can be passed on in the mother's milk.
Hope this helps.
