Making the decision to start a family is an important one. Have you considered how your health history may affect future generations? Genetic testing is available to those who are planning a family or are currently pregnant.
Genetic counseling gives you information you may need to make informed decisions about your health. The genetic counselor will help you understand complex genetic information and the options available for genetic testing. From the explanation of test results to providing an initial emotional and psychosocial assessment, the genetic counselor will be there with you to navigate the complexity of genetic disorders.
Talk to your prenatal care provider to determine if meeting with a genetic counselor is right for you. If so, your prenatal care provider will arrange a referral.
