Most children are born healthy to women with a history of genital warts
Because of hormone changes in
the body during pregnancy, warts
can grow in
size and number, bleed, or, in extremely rare cases, make delivery harder.
Very rarely, babies exposed to the wart-types of HPV during birth may develop growths in the throat.
This so seldom happens, however, that women with genital warts do not typically need to have a cesarean-section delivery unless warts are blocking the birth canal.
