It is advisable for HIV parents not to have children. The children will carry the HIV virus which could within 10-15 years develop into Aids. No parent would wish this on a child surely.

Yes.Many children born to HIV positive parents can be normal or HIV negative.No made of transmission of HIV is hundred percent sure.Among the routes of transmission of HIV,baby born to a HIV positive mother will probably have the highest chances of HIV transmission.Transmission from a HIV postive father with a HIV negative mother is almost impossible.It is advisable that a HIV positive mother should not opt for a child.However if a mother found to be HIV positive before delivery there are many precautions which can be taken including elective caesarian section,chemoprophylaxis etc.If a baby born to an HIV postive mother she should not breast feed her baby and avoid intimate physical contact.Usual caring of baby will not transmit HIV.
