"I would encourage any women to access support. There was nothing more powerful for me then meeting another positive women"
The “From Pregnancy to Baby and Beyond” project is run by Positively UK in partnership with clinicians to help women living with HIV make informed choices and decisions around pregnancy, birth and the care of themselves and their babies.
This includes a team of women called "Mentor Mothers", themselves living with HIV, who can provide care, knowledge and support for others. The film, made by social research and film-trainer, Dr Dominique Chadwick, highlights the key importance of peer network support, led by and for women living with HIV, through the pregnancy journey.
If you would like to receive support and information or talk to someone else who has had a child whilst living with HIV then please call 020 7713 0444 and ask for Angelina or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
