Rare inherited dz: Belongs to a group of diseases known as the mucopolysaccaridoses. Affected individuals are unable to produce an enzyme that breaks down long chains of sugar. These long chains of sugar build up/damage organs like the heart. Symptoms can be mild to severe/death (deaf, mental retardation, joint-bone dz, clouded corneas, etc).

MFM: You need a consultation with maternal-fetal medicine specialist to help you find the answer to that question, and you need to do it before conception.

Having preeclampsia once what to do to prevent this  again ?My babies died after 20 days in icu bec they were premature 28 weeks

Aspirin!: I am very sorry for your losses. Aspirin 80-81 mg daily would be my recommendation unless you are allergic or have gastritis or peptic ulcer disease.

Take calcium as well if you are lactose intolerant otherwise dairy product consumption suffices. Do not change sexual partners. ...Read more

These twins hardly ever survive because no membrane separates their cords, so the normal movement will eventually wind up twisting the two cords around each other until strangulation occurs ...Read more

My friend has a normal 5 yr old baby girl....But other 2 pregnancies she had baby boys with brain tumors.The babies died right after. Whts reason?

Unusual: Brain tumors in general are relatively rare in the general population. For there to be two in one family is unusual. She should have some work-up by her neurologist and a geneticist to see if there is some genetic syndrome that puts her and her family at increased risk for brain tumors. ...Read more
