– It is possible for a woman to get Zika and NOT pass the disease on to her fetus. While the exact likelihood is still largely unknown, there is a chance that a woman could get the disease and not pass it on to her baby. If you are pregnant and you do contract Zika, you should seek medical attention right away and notify your healthcare provider, who can perform more frequent ultrasounds and in some cases a more invasive test called amniocentesis, which allows you to test the baby’s chromosomes and assess whether or not your fetus has been affected by your illness.
