    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    I just discovered that I have hep c. I have a ten month old son. What are the chances I passed it to him during birth. I had a c-section delivery in case that matters. How do I get him tested, and is there treatment for babies? How can the disease affect his development or health? My mind is racing with paranoid mama fears. He is my only child and I had him at 36. I've waited a long time for him and I am so worried for him.
