pregnant with aids

Nov 1, 2013

A mother is HIV positive. Will my baby have aids?

Response from Mr. Glenn

Thanks for your question,

It's important for all pregnant women with HIV to talk to their doctors about their status. There is very effective treatment to help make sure the baby is born negative.

The odds of the baby being born with HIV when the mother is taking treatment is incredibly low.

Hope this helps!
