I am a 31 year old female and currently 37 weeks pregnant. This evening I ate a burger that was pink on the inside. I am worried about getting listeria or toxoplasmosis from it. I will be scheduled for a C-section around 11 to 13 days from now and I am wondering what are the odds of passing a possible infection to my baby in this time span? Can one transmit toxoplasmosis or listeriosis to a fetus during the incubation period of infection? Should I undergo any tests? Or is my risk small? Thank you.
