How can HIV/AIDS affect my pregnancy?

ANSWER

Thanks to the creation of powerful medications, transmission of HIV infection to your infant is significantly reduced or can be prevented. But, when the disease is passed on, the results are catastrophic -- the baby may develop HIV infection. Talk to your doctor if you are thinking about getting pregnant to see what to do to lower the risk of spreading the disease to your baby.”
