Some info/help please

My daughter ha3 3 children.  Two births were normal, the middle child's birth was the result of total abruption, emergency c-section, child was not alive at birth, bagged, stabelized and transferred to Cook's in Ft Worth. At the age of 3 was diagnosed with autism.(at birth he was without oxygen for 7 minutes). After the delivery my daughter had blood work that revealed MTHFR.

My question is, my first 2 preg's were a disaster.  Bleeding the first 6-7 months of both. I now have a problem with swollen feet and ankles due to poor blood flow and low blood pressure.  Do I also have MTHFR and is this causing my swollen feet/ankles.  My feet stay cold, but are not cold to touch.
