I've been reading many articles trying to find the age above which there is no risk on the embryo from a Zika virus infection. All what I got was similar to "very dangerous at the beginning" or "not so much harm in last months of preganancy". But no one ever tells you that, for example, after 5-months of pregnancy, infection will not harm the baby-to-be.

The thing is, my wife is pregnant. And currently we live in Germany and were thinking to give birth in our country where many Zika virus cases were reported.

I'd like to hear an answer like: after 7 months of pregnany, 0% of harm will happen to the babay-to-be if the mother gets infected. Please attach a reference to your answer.

BTW: This is not a duplicate to this. As there, it's asked about already-born babies.
