Ensuring proper nutrition is a critical component of living with HIV as it is with being pregnant. The two conditions combined mean that pregnant women living with HIV are especially vulnerable to nutrient deficiencies and these women must monitor their nutritional status accordingly. The review provides general recommendations to address these issues.
This booklet is designed for women living with HIV who are planning a pregnancy or are already pregnant. Topics include basic HIV and HIV treatment information, how to stay healthy before and during pregnancy, unique issues that may face women living with HIV, and where to go for more information and support. The booklet is an update to the previous HIV and pregnancy-related pamphlets provided by the Saskatchewan Prevention Institute.
This poster explains that for women living with HIV, smoking tobacco during pregnancy can increase the chances that HIV will be passed to the baby. Websites are listed to help pregnant women and those planning a pregnancy to quit or reduce their tobacco use.
