BHIVA's Guidelines for the management of HIV infection in pregnant women 2012, set out evidence-based clinical practice for treating and managing HIV infection in women who are already pregnant. These guidelines also specify the treatment and care of the newborn baby in relation to preventing HIV transmission. HIV clinic staff, following recommendations in these guidelines, will be providing the best possible treatment and care to their patients, taking into account individuals’ situations as well as what is known about the most effective treatments during pregnancy. Your doctor should discuss your treatment options with you.
