CEU Course Description

Studies of pregnancy in the HAART era indicate that pregnancy is common after a diagnosis of HIV and live birth rates are significantly increased when compared with the pre-HAART period; abortion is less common; and HIV infected women often desire more children, influenced by advances in HIV care.  This CEU course reviews issues related to reproductive decision-making, including preconception care and counseling and use of contraception to reduce unintended pregnancy.  In addition, issues related to pregnancy and guidelines for care during pregnancy to optimize the health of both the mother and her baby are discussed.
