You should check your wife's anti HBsAg level which indicates her protection status.  You should have undergone periodical test for HBV infection to track about your disease course which means it is necessitate antiviral treatment. If everything is alright consult with a Hepatologist regarding having a baby.  Proper guidance are available to avoid infection in baby.
