D is best. 2 min
A and B are out because it sounds as if the children also had miscarriages
C and E are out because it misplaces "either". It should have been "to have either X or Y" or "either to have X or to have Y"

It is D.

A, B - "bear children with miscarriages" bad implications.
C, E - missing proper parallel usage of "either .. or"
D - parallel, justifiedly seprated use of "miscarriages ... children with heart defects". Correct.

(A) to have borne children with heart defects or miscarriages, and none of their pregnancies was

their refers to what/who? too many problems ...

(B) to have had children born with heart defects or miscarriages, and none of the pregnancies was

children with miscarriages??? wrong..

(C) either to have had children with heart defects or miscarriages, without any of their pregnancies being

so wrong..pararlelism issue again plus sounds like children had miscariages as pointed out previously

(D) either to have had miscarriages or to have borne children with heart defects; none of the pregnancies was

Correct.

(E) either to have had miscarriages or children born with heart defects, without any of their pregnancies being

not parallel, along with other issues
