Streptococcus pyogenes is not known to be transmitted to the fetus. However the fetus can get infected while passing through the birth canal at the time of delivery. The fetus is directly affected by a high fever produced by the organism. infection can be controlled effectively by antibiotics. Hope that answers the question
Take care
