Being with child and being on Coumadia is living lifes on the line. Go to a clinic and discuss it with your doctor.

I've been taking warfarin ( the generic for Coumadin) for five years. My doctor told me not to get pregnant while taking it because it will cause birth defects.

There are no known issues regarding Coumadin and it effecting your genetics or a baby's genetics. The real question is why you are on Coumadin? If you have a genetic blood disorder and depending on your wife's genetic makeup you may or may not pass on your condition(s). You and your wife would need to see a Hematologist and a Geneticist to determine what effect your combined genetics would have on a baby. Best of luck on the family getting pregnant.
