Question

My viral load is undetectable, can I transmit HIV to my baby?

My viral load is 22 and cd4 is 356. Can I transmit to my unborn.? I am 5 months pregnant.

Answer

Thanks for getting in touch.

Its great to hear that your viral load is undetectable, this is really important when thinking about transmission.

At this time its not possible to say if your baby will be born positive or not. However the risk will be reduced due to you being on medication. For more info about pregnancy, please see here:

    Hi Gal,

    Yes its OK to change from breast milk to formula milk. Babies usually don’t need water until they are older.

    Can I stop breastfeeding at 3 months and give my baby formula and water?
