The management of HIV-infected woman who became pregnant needs the collaboration of different and complementary medical experts in order to minimize the risk of mother-to-child transmission of HIV. Currently, vaginal delivery must be guaranteed to all HIV-infected women in whom this choice is considered safe. The aim of our paper is to describe the organization of a large tertiary acute-care teaching hospital of Northern Italy with a total of 262 deliveries from 231 HIV-infected women between 1985 and 2014. A multidisciplinary team (MDT) has developed a risk-stratified three categories approach to labour and delivery in HIV-infected women in order to improve patient's care and management.
