Mission: To protect women and children from hepatitis B and to eliminate mother-to-child transmission.

About Us

HepBMoms is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to the prevention of mother-to-child (perinatal) transmission of hepatitis B infection. During the time of birth, newborns can become infected with the hepatitis B virus (if their moms have hepatitis B) and have a high likelihood of developing lifelong (chronic) infection. Chronic infection with the hepatitis B virus causes a serious infection of the liver, which can eventually lead to liver cancer or liver failure. But newborns can be protected for life through a simple measures like vaccination. This website was developed as a resource for pregnant women, health care providers, and public health officials to reduce perinatal hepatitis B transmission and the associated health consequences, and for pregnant women to learn more about hepatitis b.

About Hep B

Although a safe and effective recombinant hepatitis B vaccine has been available since 1982, HBV still kills 600,000 people every year worldwide.

For Moms

Hepatitis B can be transmitted from an infected mother to child during the birthing process so it is important to take certain steps to protect your health and your child’s health.

For Providers

The 2013 Physician’s Guide to Hepatitis B is a popular handbook that provides health care providers with the latest information on the incidence, transmission, detection, prevention, and management of hepatitis B & liver cancer.
