MRSA and Pregnancy

Dear Midwife,
I had my first baby through emergency c-section last year. My wound still has not healed so I am having surgery in which they will open it and clean it from the inside.

I was told last week that I am MRSA positive and today I found out that I am pregnant.

Will this surgery and the MRSA be harmful to my unborn child?
