Couple Adrian and Kat shared parental leave after their second child was born and believe it enhanced not only their relationship but their bond with their children. They are on the sofa to share their experience.

The mum to be with HIV

When they first told me my brain just completely switched off.

– Amanda Mammadova on hearing she had HIV

Amanda Mammadova has HIV and is pregnant with her second child since diagnosis. Amanda, 34, has conceived naturally twice, despite the risk of passing HIV on to her husband Ali and her unborn baby.

The couple's two-year-old daughter is HIV-free, as is Ali, but they will have to wait until their son is born, in June, to see if he has the virus. Amanda is an 'elite controller' which means her immune system is ultra-effective at controlling the virus and there's a very low risk of passing on HIV during sex or pregnancy.

We speak to her to mark the 30th anniversary since the first HIV blood test became available, and also take a look at the case of Becky Mitchell, 40, who was infected by an ex partner.
