I am a child of a mother who took bendectin

I had emergency csection with my son and a planned C-section with my daughter. About 4 years ago I found out I had a premature heart beat and "sagging heart". I know all of this is related to bendectin because no one in my family either side had these issues. My question is has anyone researched if those or other type issues or deformities can now be passed to our children. ## Here's a Bendectin websit...
