Benefits of Genetic Information for Families
Get personalized advice from a genetics expert
Planning for Pregnancy?
Most babies are born healthy. About 3-5% of babies have a birth defect or problem with development. Knowing about the chances for inherited conditions before or during pregnancy empowers parents-to-be to keep their family as healthy as possible.
Access a growing number of therapies for inherited disease.
Decide about conceiving, freezing eggs, using a donor, testing embryos through IVF, or adopting.
TESTING A PREGNANCY
Test a fetus at risk to make pregnancy or newborn care decisions.
Why Mainstream Genomics
Most prenatal care or fertility providers will offer some routine genetic testing and ask some basic questions about family health history. The information is incomplete without in-depth family history from a genetics expert like a genetic counselor.
More than 10% of women or couples have a genetic risk that routine prenatal care does not identify.
Research shows that genetic professionals are more familiar with genetic risk and genetic testing.
