Can someone who has aids give birth to a child that doesn't have aids?
Someone with aids giving birth..................

no...aids can definitely be passed to a child through birth...

Yes, but chances are the virus will get through the placenta and infect the child.

depends if both of the parents have aids.

but usually its a 1/3 chance that the kid will have aids.
witch is good cause the majority favors the healthy side:)

but really it depends on the virus and how far it has come and how the body has reacted to it.
thats something if you wanted to know a 100% the chances, you would ask a doctor specialized in birth and what not...

Yes, there is a certain shot that the mother has to get before her child is born. I can't think of the name of it. If she does receive the shot then the child can be born free of HIV.

Cameron J
No because the blood is running through the mother to the child. Unless the mother hasn't contracted aids yet, which would totally defeat the purpose of this question...

Honest Angel
but it's a very big chance!! Congrats on your upcoming arrival! it is like gambling though.... anything is possible!
as hard as it may be the dice have been rolled so really try not to worry to much about it!
for right now just live in the moment this is the only life you have and I'd hate to have never experienced being a mother!!
if baby turns up negative then wonderful!! if baby turns up positive then I'm sure this is something you guys will be able to deal with together
I know no body wants aids (sorry you were chosen) but if I had to choose between never existing or having aids I'd definately choose being here with aids....
Good Luck To You And Your Baby!!
let me add that I had traumatic deliveries with both of my babies where they had lacerations on their heads from the vacuum so a C-SECTION would be less of a risk for baby!!

yes aids can be giving to the child during birth.

Quagmire F
Yes. There is something, medicine, a shot, or some sort of procedure that can be done to lower the chances of it happening. I would definitely ask a doctor about the options.

Bobby B
it's probably possible, but no worth the risk

it would probably be safest to get a surrogate mother or whatever

yes. but yet it isnt uncommen for it not to be passed on. it all depends on how strong the genes are that transfer to the baby.

yes. separate blood supply & drugs can be used to reduce the risk of infection. however, breastfeeding isn't an option.

I think it is possible not to pass on HIV if the mother is given the right medications throughout the pregnancy...

Yes. It is possible for HIV (virus that can lead to AIDS) to be transmitted from mother to child at birth, BUT if the mother is given medications during pregnancy, and has a C-section, the risk of transmission is significantly reduced. In these cases, risk of transmission is about 1%.

Transmission of HIV from mother to baby can also occur through breastfeeding, so women who have HIV should not breastfeed their babies.

Actually, most of the time when a mother has HIV, the baby will not have it. About 1 in 3 children born to mothers with HIV will have the virus - which means 2 out of 3 will not.

However, 1 in 3 is still very high. But there are also drugs the mother can take which will help protect the baby even more. By taking the right drugs at the right time, it is possible to lower the chance that the child will have HIV. It is very important that a mother with HIV talks to a professional health provider about this; so they can advise her on where to get the right medication to protect the baby.
