Support Groups

HIV and pregnancy can be very isolating. It may be helpful to seek out a support group either in person or online. There are professionals that can help pregnant women with HIV talk about their feelings, talk to partners about an HIV diagnosis, discuss safe sex options and cope with learning about an HIV diagnosis during pregnancy. Many women learn their HIV status through prenatal testing.  

Nurses, social workers or case managers can help connect you to support groups in your area. Organizations that typically offer support groups include:
