Genital Herpes in Pregnancy, Management (Green-top 30)

This is the second edition of this guideline, which was originally published in 2002 under the same title.

The severe consequences of neonatal herpes infection are well established and obstetricians and other health professionals caring for pregnant women need to be aware of interventions that may reduce the risk of perinatal transmission. The literature has been reviewed in order to update recommendations for the management of genital herpes in pregnancy made in the original RCOG Green-top Guideline No.30 published in March 2002.
