Additional info

This guide is about HIV and pregnancy. Other important aspects of HIV treatment and care are described in detail in other i-Base guides.

These free booklets provide additional information on the basics of using and getting the best out of your treatment. They also explain in more detail words and phrases introduced in this one that might be unfamiliar or confusing, including CD4, viral load and resistance.

We hope that you will use these guides together when you need them. Your HIV clinic will probably have copies of any or all of them. You can also order them online:
