| Response from Dr. Henry
It is quite possible for HIV+ parents to conceive and deliver a healthy HIV-negative baby. The key to the best outcome is maintaining an undetectable viral level during the latter part of pregnancy and delivery (if that happens then chances for baby to be infected often are under 1% or less than 1 out of a hundred). Efavirenz is not recommended during pregnancy so an alternative drug (such as nevirapine or a boosted protease inhibitor) is recommended if that is an option based on where you live and treatment history.
