Are you a woman living with HIV?
Want to know more about having a baby while HIV positive in 2018?
Come to our Pregnancy Journey workshop
Led by women who have been through pregnancy while living with HIV and health care specialists.
Find out all that you have ever wanted to know about pregnancy and HIV and meet other women living with HIV who want families
Being HIV positive shouldn’t stop women who want to, to be parents. With good treatment, care and support, women with HIV can expect to have a joyous pregnancy and parenthood just like any other person.
Despite this, many women may have doubts and/or questions about the implications of having HIV and becoming a parent. This is why we are running a one day Pregnancy Journey workshop, led by our mentor mothers – women who have been through pregnancy while being HIV positive – and with the participation of doctors and midwives, to support women who would like to know up-to-date information on HIV, pregnancy and parenthood.
On the day we will cover:
- Pre-Conception: things to consider before getting pregnant, how to conceive safely, communicating with partners
- Pregnancy: what happens during pregnancy, HIV treatment and the baby
- Delivery: the options available, how to make choices
- Aftercare: the mother’s health, your baby’s health, breast feeding and formula milk, building a support network
It will be a great opportunity to meet other women with HIV who are mothers or want to be mothers.
