6 doctors agree

In brief: Why?

As i understand it, current retroviral treatments can make HIV levels undetectable in some individuals and prevent transmission to the baby.
If would be a concern if the mother were not getting appropriate HIV treatment and prenatal care.

There are many ways to minimize risk.
