I have Myotonic dystrophy and am currently trying to have a baby without passing on the genetic condition to my future baby.  I am using a technique called pre-implantation genetic diagnosis (PGD).

I already have a baby who was conceived in this way.

My father, grandfather and many others in my family also have Myotonic dystrophy, which is a kind of muscular dystrophy.  I am blogging about my experinces in the hope of raising awareness of both PGD and Myotonic dystrophy.
