HIV can be transmitted from HIV-infected women to their babies.

The way this can happen is via transmission to your unborn child during pregnancy or delivery or during breastfeeding.

What should I do?

First get tested to know your status, then seek medical treatment urgently if you find out that you are HIV-positive.
