Hotline Best Practices: Labor & Delivery Care for Pregnant People with HIV and Care of Infants with Perinatal Exposure to HIV

The Illinois 24/7 Perinatal HIV Hotline's best practices for labor & delivery and postpartum care for people living with HIV (including those with a preliminarily positive rapid HIV test) and newborns with HIV exposure were adapted from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Recommendations for the Use of Antiretroviral Drugs During Pregnancy and Interventions to Reduce Perinatal HIV Transmission in the United States. They were developed Dr. Lynn Yee, Director of the Women’s Infectious Disease Program at Northwestern Memorial Hospital and Medical Director of the Illinois 24/7 Perinatal HIV Hotline; Dr. Ellen Chadwick, Director, Section of Pediatric and Maternal HIV Infection and Dr. Jennifer Jao, both at the Northwestern Feinberg School of Medicine and Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago; and Dr. Julia Rosebush, Director of Pediatric/Adolescent HIV, Comer Children’s Hospital at the University of Chicago.
