Our expert says:
If you can afford HART therapy, this has the best chance of decreasing transmission to the baby and you can start this straight away. If not, there are two options: 1) AZT from 36 weeks 2) Nevirapine as a stat dose when the labour pains start. Both of these decrease transmission to around 10%. You should also decide about your method of feeding. Bottle feeding decreases transmission in breast milk.
