I have NF2. I was recently diagnosed with it. I have only one child, who do have special needs. which could of been cause form my nf. I go to a special doctor for my nf now, I met a women there with six children, all of the kids had a disabilities. she said " 3 of them have autism and 2 of nf1 and the youngest is delayed in speech and walking skills. but what I found weird she is pregnant now. the women told me her doctor said her NF caused her children autism. ( of course this did not happen when we first met, i have her number we do aim each other when were not busy)
Is it a bad idea to have to many kids with nf?

According to what I'm reading I would say no only for the child sake. =[
