“When baby is born negative from a positive mother, make sure the baby takes her meds effectively for as long as you breastfeed her so that she or he remains negative,” she said.

Nancy started a project to help fellow women erase the fear of becoming parents because of their HIV status. “I learned that most women living with HIV are afraid of getting pregnant because they don’t know how to go about it. My intention is to let them know that being HIV positive doesn’t limit any woman from being a mother, they can get Hiv negative babies and live like other negative kids. I want women living with Hiv to know that it is not a crime to have a baby when you are HIV positive,” she said.
