	As long as the parasite can cross the placenta obviously the answer
is yes.  I believe that is the major mode of transmission of sylvantic
Trypanosoma cruzi in this country.  I can get you in contact with the
researchers on that if you are interested.  My impression is that the
placenta is a barrier in many, but not all cases.
