Mthfr genes: Heterozygous individuals pass the mutation to a child 50% of the time. If both parents carry mthfr genes, there is a 1:4 chance that a child will have both, and 1:4 chance of neither (normal). Ask your OB to check your homocysteine level, and folate level, but most with heterozygosity do not need treatment. Only homozygous or a child with both genes may have clotting disorders.
