Brief Answer: Does your mother suffer from HIV? Detailed Answer: Hi, HIV infection is tranferrable from infected individual to another individual. If your mother is not affected by HIV / AIDS, your worries about HIV is unnecessary. You would definitely not get HIV infection from an non-infected individual. Hope this is clear. Let me know if you need clarifications. Regards
