ABOUT THE FILM

When a pregnant young woman discovers that she is HIV-positive, her world comes crashing down. As she exhausts her possible options, the damage caused by her own errors overshadows whatever hopes she foresees for her child.

Statistics show that 53% of new HIV infections for 2009 in the Caribbean occurred among women and girls. For some women, there is additional heartache if they are also pregnant as there is a chance that their child could become infected with HIV. A project of the Walker Lela Foundation for Women’s Empowerment, Positive &amp Pregnant aims to educate and assist in the prevention of mother-to-child transmission of HIV/AIDS in Trinidad &amp Tobago, by bringing awareness to its viewers on the treatment process for HIV-positive expectant mothers, as well encouraging viewers to be tested for HIV.
