  • Cystic Fibrosis? I think it is rare for a CF patient to have a child.

  • With a Cystic Fibrosis patient, it is very difficult to have a healthy pregnancy, but not impossible. The important part is the carrier aspect. They must make sure the partner is not a carrier, otherwise the child could also be CF +. I have known two in my life. A little girl I used to babysit for who died at the age of 11 and a friend who died when he was 17.
