There is no relationship between HIV and genital warts (except in the trivial sense that they are both caused by viruses). Warts are not normally passed on from mother to child.

They are caused by two different viruses, however, having one makes it easier to contract the other. HIV is more easily contracted by people with genital warts and herpes because the skin is already compromised and HIV can pass more easily through to the bloodstream. Women with HPV can pass it on to their child during birth but it is very rare, not really something you should worry about.
