Thanks to everyone for your postings, they have been really helpful.

The last four years of our lives have been a challenge. Our son was born in May 2005. Sadly he died aged eighteen weeks of a little known genetic disease called SMARD1 (Spinal Muscular Atrophy with Respiratory Distress). Each of our pregnancies has a one in four chance of being affected by SMARD. Sadly since losing Fergus we have had five unexplained miscarriages - not linked to SMARD (number five is currently happening hence my desperate 'Googling') and a termination as the baby had SMARD and would have died within the first six months of its life.

We have had recurrent miscarriage investigations by our consultant at Addenbrooke's, and privately by Lesley Regan at St. Mary's. The results showed no issues. During my most recent pregnancy I was taking progesterone and Clexane just in case it might help but obviously it didn't. I'm thirty five.

Anyway, I just wondered if anyone had any more information on the NK cells research?
Any advice or info. gratefully received!

Thanks for reading.

Very best wishes to you all.
