In the absence of any intervention, babies have a 5 to 40 percent chance of contracting HIV from their infected mothers. In over half of these cases, transmission occurs during labor and delivery, although transmission can occur at any point during pregnancy and while breastfeeding. Research has shown that treating HIV-infected mothers with anti-retroviral therapy significantly reduces the risk of maternal-child transmission.
