There are OB Dr's that specialize in HIV+ pregnancies,talk to your Dr for a referral to one of them.They will be able to advise you what's best for you and the baby.It would probably be best to do this before you get pregnant since the baby is most sensitive to certain meds and chemicals in your body during the early stages of development.

Best wishes

This is a discussion you need to have with your ID doctor. They need to explain all the pros and cons and then you need to weigh them all and decide from there!!! Good luck!
