Your wife is safe now but there is a chance that your wife will infect your child during delivery.
Good thing is that transmission of hepatitis b from mother to baby can be stopped by new medicine so consul with good gastroenterologist immediately.
Please keep calm and consult your gastroenterologist.

Thanks, will surely do that. Any repercussions in the future? Also, is there a chance of other family members being infected with the same?
Do not worry about future majority of person remain well life time after treatment.check hbv dna liver funtion at least in annually if high use medicine.vaccinate yourself and if earlier vaccinated check your hbsab antibody.

Hepatitis B isn't always life threatening. Is it curable/ controllable in most of the cases. Give specific reports/ results and have faith.
