In brief: It is doubtful

Cushing's disease is typically triggered by a tumor or excessive growth of the pituitary gland.
This causes the overproduction of acth, an adrenocorticotropic hormone, which causes the symptoms. Cushing's syndrome can occur from exposure to high doses of steroid medication common to difficult to treat asthma or rheumatoid arthritis. It is unlikely your baby will have the same trigger as you.
