Check out this Hangout to see how PrEP Awareness Campaigns are including women! We also have a list of resources from all the campaigns on the Hangout.
Angela McGill is a woman living with HIV. She tells her story of discovering she had HIV and going on to have an HIV-free baby with the help of BAPAC (Bay Area Perinatal AIDS Center), now known as HIVE. Dr. Deb Cohan explains how it’s possible for women living with HIV to have natural births and not pass HIV on to their babies.
Poppy and Ted, a serodifferent couple (Ted is living with HIV and Poppy isn?t), talk with their provider, Emily Miller, MD, MPH, about their options for having a baby.
Dr. Garcia explains what will happen during the prenatal visit, and tells Poppy that, ?Every pregnant woman should know her HIV status.?
Poppy says that her partner is living with HIV, and Dr. Garcia asks her if they can discuss options to keep Poppy safe during pregnancy.
