Hi Sarahg,
Just a brief response - I am hoping others will respond, but there isn't a lot of traffic on the hep B forum, especially from Australia. I suggest you contact http://www.hepatitisaustralia.com/
As for your question, I know that in the US, there are measured they take to reduce risk of transmitting hep B to infants. However, I don't know what sort of discrimination you might face - hopefully none.
Hope you find support and answers.
