Many people with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) are able to have healthy pregnancies and deliver healthy babies. However, if you have HIV, there is a risk that you can pass the virus on to your baby anytime during pregnancy, labor and delivery, and breastfeeding.
The chances of passing the infection on to your baby are lower if you take HIV medicines, also called antiretroviral therapy (ART). ART medicines do not cure HIV, but they can keep HIV from spreading to your baby.
There is no way to guarantee that your baby will be born without HIV. Taking ART medicines and following your health care provider's instructions before and during pregnancy will help lower the risk of passing HIV to your baby.
