Can a woman with HIV be surrogate?

By Andrea Rodrigo.
Last Update: 11/16/2016

In the process of surrogacy, a woman with HIV will be discarded because she does not have optimal health conditions. An HIV-positive woman can transmit HIV to the baby at any time during pregnancy, with increased risk during childbirth.

If a woman chooses to become pregnant despite having HIV, she will receive medication during childbirth to reduce the risk of mother-to-child transmission and a cesarean delivery will be preferred.
