There are only 2 indications for infection related C section, genital herpes and HIV.
In all other infection related cases vaginal delivery.
The greatest risk for vertical transmission occurs when there is primary infection to the mother.

I agree with that, what I was wondering is the reason why is O.K to perform vaginal delivery in an active case of CMV since the virus is also sexually transmitted (vaginal fluids), I mean virus concentration in vaginal secretions is enough to infect a sexual partner why not the baby as he passes through the vaginal canal.

The question is about wanting to know the ¨WHY¨ of the given fact
