    Question Hemoglobin C

    Does anyone know anything about testing positive for the hemoglobin C (HbC) trait?

    Roxi,

    A few years ago, I remember that we had someone in a chat with one of our experts that tested positive for HbC trait. One thing that stuck with me was the stress that did *not* mean that your baby has a disease or prevent your baby from having a perfectly healthy life.

    I found a brochure that perhaps can answer some of your questions and provide a bit of reassurance for you:

    Hemoglobin C Trait
    (This is a pdf file. Let me know if you cannot open.)

    Wishing you all the best,

    ~Missy

    Thanks Missy! That helped me a little. DH is being tested for it too. I was also wondering what the implications are if he has the trait too.... I'm sure the doc will explain it if that is the case.

    Good news. Found out today that DH is negative for HbC so we don't have to worry about it with Bump #2 (when it happens).
