    HIV-positive and pregnant If you test HIV-positive, you can still give birth to HIV-negative babies. Seek advice about starting HIV treatment for your own health, and to protect your baby from HIV. Starting HIV treatment when pregnant Guidelines recommend starting HIV treatment (also called antiretroviral treatment or ART) as soon as you are diagnosed, and that you continue to take treatment for life. In some countries, you may be assessed to see if you need to continue treatment for life or not.2 If you are already taking HIV treatment for your own health, keep taking it as instructed and get advice from a healthcare professional. You can begin taking HIV treatment at any point, even if you said ‘no’ before.

    Why take HIV treatment? •Keeps you strong and healthy. •Makes you less infectious. •Can protect your baby from HIV infection.3 HIV treatment during pregnancy You must take HIV treatment during pregnancy, labour and breastfeeding. Take your ARV drugs at the same time every day. If you are not advised to continue treatment for life, you must continue to take it until one week after breastfeeding stops.4 HIV and birth Your baby may be delivered naturally (l delivery) or sometimes it is necessary to have a caesarian section which is an operation. Your healthcare professional will advise the best way to deliver your baby. A l birth is usually recommended if there is a low level of HIV in your blood (an undetectable viral load). A caesarean section is usually advised if there is a high level of HIV in your blood (a detectable viral load), or in an emergency.5 6 Should I breastfeed if I'm HIV-positive? The best infant feeding option depends on the resources available to you and if you are taking treatment or not. •Baby formula feed is the safest option if you do have access to formula, sterilisation equipment and clean, boiled water every day or are not taking ART. •Exclusive breastfeeding is best if you do not have access to these things, but make sure to take your treatment.7
