I believe there is a genetic link.  You need to consult with a geneticist, they can tell you everything you need to know about your children inheriting this.  We have a genetic disease in our family and work with geneticists, they also are up to date on any new finding, treatments, etc. Take care..

Yes the acid reflux is related. I would say I don't know if you can pass it, but there is a chance for healthy children. I recently lost my son who had CDH. He was still born at 5 1/2 months. My wife is now pregnant with twins. We are so scared.
