Video: HIV-positive and pregnant, a mother-to-be strives for a healthy child

Children born to mothers infected with the AIDS virus are at risk for becoming infected themselves. One pregnant South African woman is determined that her child will be born free of HIV.

Nolubabalo Zwane of Cape Town, South Africa, has been living with HIV for 14 years. She is due to give birth in June. “If I want my baby to be negative, what am I supposed to do?” she asks. She is now taking antiretroviral pills, which can reduce the risk that her baby will become infected to less than 5 percent.
