Chelsea Gulden learned she was HIV-positive and pregnant the summer before her senior year in college. At the time, both diagnoses were a shock. “I knew HIV was out there, but I didn’t know much else,” says 23-year-old Gulden, who today is an adolescent care coordinator at the Metrolina AIDS Project in Charlotte, N.C. Gulden was on antiretroviral medication while pregnant, and she gave her newborn son, Noah, AZT syrup every six hours the first six weeks of his life. “All I could think about was my baby,” she says. “I didn’t have time to process my own diagnosis. I was just praying for him to be OK, and I was so happy when he tested negative.”Chelsea is currently involved with Hope's Voice and is a United States Campaign Ambassador for their Does HIV Look Like Me? campaign.
