Prenatal Genetic Counseling
Our genetic counselor works with you and our maternal fetal medicine team to explain complex genetic information and help you make informed decisions. A genetic counselor can help you understand:
- How genes, birth defects and medical conditions run in families and how they may affect your family’s health.
- Which genetic screening tests are available and what abnormal results mean if they show your baby may be at risk for certain health conditions.
- Which diagnostic genetic tests are available and what the results mean to help you make decisions about your pregnancy and your baby’s care.
