Yes, i did research on this topic. And want to share it with my friends. Hiv virus can be passed easily to the baby during and after pregnancy but by taking antiretroviral treatment correctly during pregnancy and breastfeeding, it can virtually eliminate the risk of passing on the virus to the baby. So if any women arround you , suffering the virus. You must share the info to her.

I had no idea there was a fix for stopping a child from getting HIV. Because usually just being in the womb can cause the baby to contact the virus. Of course, breastmilk can also hold HIV. Can you link us to this treatment that stop the virus from reaching the baby?

My suggestion, don't breastfeed a child if you have HIV.

Its called Antiretroviral therapy. Which stops HIV virus from leading to AIDS and stops from passing to others. But i also suggest to ladies i know, that they should not fead their kids if they safely deliver them. They should not take further risk.

Oof, so much to research before I can even give an opinion - I admit, I know too little of this topic.
