If my mother had HD but I don't can my baby get it?

Q. If my mother had HD but I don’t have it, could I give it to my baby? Do you still carry the gene even if you don’t develop the disease?

A. Hi, The short answer is no, if you don’t have HD then you can’t pass it on to your children. You don’t carry the HD gene. I hope this helps. Please contact us if you have any further queries.
