Yes, if the woman herself is HIV negative, and HIV negative after the pregnancy has started then there is no reason (other than contracting HIV during pregnancy) that the baby should have the disease. However, if the woman were to contract HIV during pregnancy, there is a very high chance the baby would be HIV positive because the virus replicates to very high levels in the initial phases of infection. About 5/10 babies may become infected if the mother is HIV positive.
