First, why haven't you kept up on your dog's shots?  That's very irresponsible.  You need to take him to the Vet and ask the Vet these questions ... ASAP.

Animals and humans can't be born with rabies. ... Animals cannot be born with rabies because it is a virus and not genetically related.

BUT:  Babies born to a rabid mother will most likely have rabies, because it is exposed to the mother's saliva. These babies will probably not survive long enough to go out into the world. Teach your children to never touch wildlife

Ask your vet how to proceed.
