Long story short. I am due to give birth to my second daughter today (or when she decides to come). I have just found out that the standard HIV test that was negative was written incorrectly on my Analysis sheet (HCV rather than HIV).
The hopsital where I am going to give birth in ITALY have told me that I need to do the test again, but that the results can take up to 2 weeks... and that if the results aren't in I can't breastfeed. To make matters worse, if I sign the waiver that will allow me to breastfeed, it waivers the hopsital of all responsibility!!! not just the HIV/bfeed issue.
Can I pump until the results come through and begin breastfeeding once the mix up has been cleared up???
