This is an arugment between me and my friend we watch that show I'm prego and whatever well this one was I'm prego and have AID. I thought it was kind of sad that she would get prego while she had AIDs and could maybe give it to her daughter. I not saying that she should never get prego but she already had a baby and that was how she found out she had it. She thinks who cares she wanted another child go for it.

so what do you ladys think?

the risks are minimal to a child if a woman is aware she has it and proper precations are taken during birth

I would be scared to have one if I was HIV positive but if she can afford another one, why not?

There are antiretroviral drugs that can protect babies from HIV infection. When an HIV-positive mother receives antiretroviral drugs during pregnancy, labor, and delivery; has her baby by Caesarian section; and avoids breastfeeding, the chance of passing the infection to her baby falls to less than 2% (fewer than 2 in 100). (The newborn babies are also given treatment after birth to protect them.)

If a woman is aware and her doctor treats her appropriately during pregnancy, educates her, and treats the baby after delivery, chances of transmission are 4-8%.

 This! It is not the eighties, for the love of God. HIV is no longer a death sentence. They are curing it in some people.

I had to do a little research to decide. This is what I found.  


The risk of passing HIV to your baby can be decreased to as little as two percent if a woman takes HIV meds at appropriate times in her pregnancy, delivers her baby by C-section, and does not breastfeed. HIV no longer prevents a couple from starting a family. HIV no longer means a woman can't become a mother. Again, with the proper medical care and by taking care of yourself, you can take control of your life and your future.

Way to completely negate your first statement.

Yes there is medicine now to prevent the baby from contracting it during pregnancy.  Also as long as she has a C-Section and doesn't breastfeed there is no reason for her not to.  The chances are only around 2% of the baby contracting it no different than any other genital defect that could run in families.
