Hi. I`m pregnant and the problem occurred when I found out that I got cystic fibrosis. I know it`s a genetic disease. I fear for my baby. Is there anybody with experience who could tell me something about that? How is CF inherited?

Hi. I have CF and a perfectly healthy child. If you are the only one with a CF your children will be healthy. However, there is a 50-50 chance that your kids will be a carrier, without any symptom of CF. Even when mother and father carry the CF gene, your child have a 25% chance that he or she will have CF, and a 25% chance that the baby will not have the CF gene. It`s really very rare that both parent carry the CF gene, but you should check it out.
