Unlikely: Husband's Factor V Leiden, even if transmitted to the fetus/baby is not likely to result in miscarriage. I am sorry for the loss of pregnancies you suffered, but what you described is not unusual. A woman Factor V Leiden may have miscarriages due to her blood clotting more easily and the clots affecting the placenta.
