If the wife is pregnant and negative.. dere's no chance she can pass it to unborn child. Offcourse she needs to take care of herself by not engaging into unprotected sex (% exw has explained above.)
If somehow the wife contracts HIV during her pregnancy. There are medicines available which prevent HIV from passing to the unborn babies.
