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.
