Many women have had babies who are HIV negative when the mother was living with HIV.  Less than one baby in a hundred contracts HIV during pregnancy, which means that over 99% of babies who are delivered to women living with HIV in the UK are born HIV-free.  Medical help is readily available for all HIV positive mothers-to-be and you should speak to your HIV consultant if you are planning to have a baby.
