Our expert says:
Some forms of epilepsy are genetically inherited and it seems as if this condition follows an autosomal recessive inheritance pattern in your family. It means that you and your husband may be nomal carriers with a 25% chance that your children will inherit one defective copy of the gene from each parent. If this is the case, there is also a 25% chance of a normal pregnancy and 50% chance of carrier children who will also not be affected.
