Get the facts: I'm glad this was picked up before you considered becoming parents. If you have the same kind of thal trait (do you both have beta?) and things are otherwise as you say, each pregnancy has a 1/4 chance of thal major; most people very much do not want to bring a child into the world with this. I've read that preimplantation testing is available & hope this is an option.
