If a lady with ais syndrome does get successfully pregnant through ivf/donor egg is there any risk of the child inheriting the syndrome from birth mum?

In brief: AIS

No, ais cannot be passed through child-birth, but a lady with ais cannot be pregnant either. She has no uterus or oocytes so she can't either carry a child nor contribute eggs for conception in a gestational surrogate.
If the oocytes are from a separate egg donor, the risk of ais is low, as in the general population.

In brief: No uterus

A lady with androgen insensitivity syndrome (ais) does not have a uterus, so cannot get pregnant.
However, if a man with a less-severe case of ais was one of the rare ais males who were able to make some sperm, he might be able to father a child.
