Question

Does my baby need to take NVP?

I’ve positive and have a baby. I decided not to breastfeed my baby, do they still need to take NVP?

Answer

Thanks for getting in touch.

All babies who are born to positive mothers need to take a course of ARVs, this is even if the baby isn’t being breastfeed. For more info, please see here: https://i-base.info/guides/pregnancy/will-baby-need-hiv-drugsĀ  ARVs are given as a precaution.
