I have been diagnosed positive for hepatitis C after pregnancy. What precautions and treatment is advised ?

I am a 26 yr old female in good health, also pregnant . I just received a call from my Dr saying that a blood test came back positive for Hepatitis C . I am overwhelmed and scared, and wondering how long might I live for? What will happen next? Is there any hope for treatment? And will my baby be ok?

Welcome to HealthcareMagic forum.
Heptitis C is just a routine water borne liver infection. There is nothing to be so much scared of. It is completely curable. It will not have any adverse effect on your baby.Rest assured.
