Without use of HIV therapy, which scenario presents a higher risk for a baby to be born HIV positive: HIV positive mother/HIV negative father, or HIV negative mother/HIV positive father?
Response from Dr. Lee
If the mother is HIV negative, there is no way for the baby to acquire the disease during her pregnancy.
