Hep E in pregnancy may cause complications as compared to other individuals.But with monitoring and joint supervision of Gastroenterology and gynaecology doctors itâ€™s cures without any hazards

Strict monitoring is required in the case and consultation with gastroenterologist is necessary with frequent labs and ultrasound to be done
