Hello steemian friends wherever you are, meet again with me @iqbal-pasee, one of the atomians member in Indonesia.

On this occasion I will discuss about pregnancy in PLWHA women.

Many women infected with HIV AIDS are afraid to get married and get pregnant, because they are worried about the risk of transmitting the virus from mother to baby.

In fact, every woman and PLWHA is no exception, has the right to be free from all forms of discrimination in reproductive life, including the right to marry and have children.

However, women living with HIV and their partners or husbands must consider carefully when planning a pregnancy. This is due to the possibility of the baby being infected with HIV from the mother.

The most influential risk factor in increasing this possibility is the amount of virus in the mother's blood, HIV transmission from mother to baby can occur from the womb due to damage to the placenta which is supposed to protect the fetus from HIV infection.

This damage allows blood from the mother to flow to the fetus. However, the risk of transmission is higher during delivery, because the baby is touched by the mother's blood or vaginal fluids while passing through the birth canal. In addition, the risk of HIV transmission through breastfeeding or breast milk can also occur.

The best way to prevent mother-to-child transmission of HIV is in the PMTCT program or the first prevention of mother-to-child transmission is to keep PLWHA women healthy during pregnancy, take ART regularly and give birth by surgery.

This method has been practiced by PLWHA women around the world for more than ten years and has had a major impact on the health of PLWHA women and their children.

"Remember prevention is much better than cure

So much information from me about pregnancy in PLWHA women, hopefully it will be useful and look forward to the next tips in my post.

Thank you for dropping by at my writing. Until we meet again in my next writing.
