Whilst genital herpes may be frequent and serious is some individuals, most people will usually only experience mild and infrequent symptoms.
Women with recurring herpes are at very low risk of transmitting the virus to their babies. However whilst the risk of transmission of the virus to a newborn baby is very rare in the UK, it is greatest when a women suffers their first episode at the time of delivery, in which case neonatal herpes can be potentially life threatening.
