im five months pregnat and my cd4 counts are 400,what food should i eat to prevent my baby from getting infected/affected?

Response from Mr. Vergel

Food has no effect on your baby's serostatus, but make sure you follow the food requirements of medications you are taking. Are you taking HIV medications? You do not say. Treating your viral load to reach an undetectable viral load is the best way for your baby not to get HIV.
