Myth about AIDS
The baby of a HIV Positive pregnant mother will also have the infection
There are less than two per cent chances of the baby being infected with HIV. If the condition of the mother is previously known, ART can prevent the unborn baby from being infected. Whether an HIV mother can or cannot breastfeed is still in a grey research area. One research in South Africa found that babies who were breastfed by their HIV positive mothers showed a lesser likelihood of mother to child transmission HIV than the ones who were breastfed and also given additional solids. Others state that HIV positive mothers shouldn t breastfeed. For the record, the WHO endorses breastfeeding among HIV positive women who are undergoing antiretroviral treatment.
