In this blog, Helen shares her experience of being a mother and having a baby after 40 whilst being HIV positive. If you would like to know more, Positively UK is running a Pregnancy Journey Workshop on Saturday 20th January for women living with HIV to learn more about pregnancy, motherhood, and becoming a parent.
My name is Sue and I have been diagnosed with HIV since March 1997, at the age of 25. When I first went to the clinic to ask for a test I was told that I wasn’t in a ‘high risk’ group. As I wasn’t a drug user, I wasn’t having ‘promiscuous’ sex and I was a white European. I still went ahead and had the test and the rest is history.
