Abstract:

This one-page handout with accompanying video and audio recording educates people about mother-to-child or perinatal transmission of HIV. It identifies three ways that a mother who is HIV-positive can spread HIV to her baby: during pregnancy, during vaginal childbirth, and through breastfeeding. The document discusses how the pregnant woman can take HIV medicines to reduce the risk of passing HIV to her baby.
