Family Planning and Pregnancy


Decisions about family planning can be difficult and very emotional when one of the prospective parents has a genetic disorder, such as Marfan syndrome. Before making any decisions, parents should understand the many options now available, as well as the potential risks to the child and the mother. A genetic counselor or the nurse in The Marfan Foundation’s help center can discuss the options with you and provide insights.

  • I have Marfan syndrome and I want to have a baby. What should I consider before pregnancy?

  • What is the chance that my baby will have Marfan syndrome?

  • Am I at greater risk of medical problems while I am pregnant?

  • Is there anything special I need to do during pregnancy?
