My wife and I recently got pregnant with our first child.
My sister-in-law's son is a Hemophiliac (Hemophilia A) She's a carrier. There's no evidence of the disease in the family before them, but that doesn't rule out the possibility of my wife being a carrier as nobody else has been checked. My brother-in-law was born without the disease and is fine and healthy.
My sister-in law has been forced to go on Medicaid, with an income cap of $1600 a month, to afford the medication for this life endangering disease.
To prevent being stuck in the same situation if we had a son that had the disease, what precautions can we take?
My wife is due at the end of July.
