Genetic counseling is available before or during pregnancy. When you meet with the genetic counselor, she will review your family history for inherited disease and potential risks.
Our genetic counselors provide information and often help ease parents’ anxiety. They discuss the advantages and disadvantages of further testing and help arrange tests if needed. They also provide support and resources for parents.
