What are the chances of my baby having heart problems if the father has a heart murmur? My husband was born with a heart murmur and we are thinking of conceiving. We would like to know the chances of the baby being born with a heart defect also.
It : It depends on the defect since some are more heritable than others. Not all heart murmurs are caused by heart defects, in fact, most heart murmurs occur in completely normal hearts. A murmur is just an extra heart sound we hear when listening to someone's heart and doesn't necessarily mean that there is a problem. Talk to your husband's doctor to find out if his murmur is due to a heart defect and what kind of defect it is if he does in fact have one.

Good luck! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
