Passing My Disability On to My Children
When I was pregnant with my first child, my ob-gyn referred me to a genetic counselor “just in case.”
The counselor did not seem too worried. “Don’t sweat it,” he said. “Frankly, this is so rare, you’d have to marry a guy from the rickets clinic to pass it on.” I gave birth to my first child — my daughter Annabelle — seven months later. She did not have XLH.
