Not universal: Not all OB doctors & midwives test for HIV in pregnancy, although it's recommended. It is not a state law required test in pregnancy. Screening for syphillis is required in most states.

At first visit: The HIV (aids) test should be done as a routine test with the blood that is drawn at the first prenatal visit.
