Welcome to e health forum.

From the given history, it is probable that you and your wife are asymptomatic carriers of genes involved in hereditary liver diseases.

Some important hereditary liver diseases include hemochromatosis and antitrypsin deficiency.

In the most severe form of 1-AT deficiency, the clinical features consist of early-onset emphysema, neonatal hepatitis, chronic hepatitis, cirrhosis, and hepatocellular carcinoma.

Since in the earlier pregnancies, the infants were affected with the condition, the probability of future pregnancies being affected would be much higher. Hence it would be best for you to avoid future pregnancies.

If you still want to have a kid, it is best advised to undergo genetic analysis to find the specific gene involved. Once confirmed, you can try to concieve. Post conception, regular blood tests of the fetus have to be done within the first 8 -12 weeks, to detect the presence of the affected gene. In case the fetus is normal and lacks the implicated gene the pregnancy can be continued. In extreme cases, where the affected gene is detected the pregnancy should be terminated, at the earliest.

The other alternative but viable options can be adoption.

You might consult with your doctors who can provide you more information regarding the exact genetic condition and guide you further.
