Being 6 months pregnant, does having a high fever put the baby at any risk?

A high fever on its own is usually due to a common viral infection and is most unlikely to put baby at risk. However, if it's a rarer viral condition or a bacterial infection associated with a generlaised 'bacteraemia'-ie an infection in you that is so severe that bacteria are detected in your blood (most commonly from a kidney infection) then this can rarely cause preterm labour and infection that crosses to baby.
