It is present in the literature. That is why I am going to leave this textbook, Remington and Klein's Infectious Diseases of the Fetus and Newborn Infant, from 2001.
I am just going to read one little paragraph from chapter 11:
It is uncertain how many episodes of gestational toxemia, spontaneous miscarriage, spontaneous abortion, stillbirth, culture-negative neonatal sepsis, failure to thrive, developmental delay, congenital heart disease, or sudden infant death syndrome may be due to unrecognized gestational Lyme borreliosis. ... Determination of true risk to the fetus and infant of maternal gestational Lyme disease requires prospective studies of all pregnancy outcomes of gestational Lyme disease, long-term follow-up of live-born products of these pregnancies, and improved diagnosis of Lyme disease in affected fetuses, placentas, and infants.
This chapter has over 888 references. It has been well cited.
We met with public health about a month ago and shared this textbook with them. When I met with them yesterday and asked them if they had had an opportunity to read it, the answer was no. I don't know if they knew it existed. Yesterday, when we went to them, they still did not have a copy of this textbook. I truly hope that, now that they have this resource in front of them, they will be able to understand that there is clear, defined information that points to congenital transmission.
