Toni and Danny: Ready for a Baby?
Planning a family when one of the partners is living with HIV has additional responsibilities. In the story, We’re in this Together, we see how Toni and Danny make a plan which results in a healthy baby.
In recognition of Mother’s Day, Let’s Talk About It wants to encourage all women to start early in planning to have a baby.

If you or your partner are living with HIV, speak with your doctor to learn how to diminish the risk of your newborn from acquiring HIV.
