Can I have a baby?

This page is part of Pocket ART, an easy guide to HIV treatment.

Yes, with HIV treatment

Women around the world have safely used antiretroviral drugs in pregnancy now for over 20 years.

Treatment will reduce the risk of your baby becoming HIV-positive to almost zero.

The information in our Pocket guide to HIV and pregnancy and in the more detailed HIV, pregnancy and womens’ health guide is meant to help make having a baby an easier and wonderful part of your life.
