Wilbroda’s Story

“Finding out I was HIV-positive while pregnant felt like a death sentence for me and my unborn child. My family isolated me. Being a single mother, jobless, and dependent on people broke my self-esteem.

Fortunately, a mothers2mothers (m2m) Mentor Mother explained that I could still be healthy, and thanks to her support, my boy was born HIV-free. I decided to join m2m as a Mentor Mother.

Becoming a Mentor Mother changed everything. I used my knowledge to educate my family about HIV, who treated me like a human again. I now help women make informed decisions to keep them and their families healthy, and make them feel understood and appreciated – I know how important that is.”
