For there to be any risk, you'd have to be both
A) in close contact (ie working on the farm and helping with lambing)
B) doing so during lambing season, which finished weeks ago

You, and baby, aren't at any risk.

Don't worry, they don't radiate toxoplasmosis.

Unless you were ferreting around in their uterus or licking a new born lamb then you aren't really at risk. Plus lambing is over by quite a few weeks.

Lots and lots of babies are born to women who live on sheep farms.

I have sheep and gave birth to 2 healthy children.

I can assure you that you had no risk walking through a field of sheep and lambs. Not even a remote risk honest take this one off the worry list. smile
