Hi everyone, as the title suggests, I have just found out that my husband & birth partner has shingles. I am 40 weeks pregnant & so could be due anytime now. The hospital have said that he can't be at the birth but advised to keep calling as over time he will be less contagious. Has anyone had any experience of this? If so, what did you do? We are both devastated & want him to be at the birth. Is there any way he can be there if he covers up the very small patch of spots (he has a mild case). Your thoughts would be much appreciated!
