How does HIV transmit to the womb from a positive mother?
Q: I have a doubt about the transmission of HIV virus from the positive mother to the baby in the womb. How does the virus go into the blood of the baby in the womb from the mother? It is through blood or digested food?
A:If the mother is HIV infected, she can transmit the HIV infection to her baby either during pregnancy or during delivery or through breast-feeding. During pregnancy, the infection passes from mother to the unborn baby through placenta (through blood).
