What To Expect From Your Prenatal Testing Guidance and the Impact it Can Have on Your Family

Prenatal & Preconception: Which is Best for You?

Preconception: Before pregnancy is a wonderful time to see a genetic counselor. Whether you are planning for your first pregnancy or are seasoned parents, there is a lot to learn from a genetics consultation. In this session, we will review your family history, discuss genetic testing that is available before pregnancy (genetic carrier screening) and testing options that will be available during pregnancy. We also enjoy working with couples who are pursuing IVF and individuals who are interested in being egg or sperm donors.

Prenatal: Many women are overwhelmed by the genetic testing options presented to them in pregnancy. In this appointment, we will review the family history and discuss all testing options your doctor provides, as well as any other testing we feel may be beneficial. This discussion will include:

Included in this Prenatal & Preconception Testing Guidance is a 60 minute phone call or video conference, personal and family history risk assessment, discussion of genetic testing options, and documentation of the appointment for you to share with your healthcare providers and family members.

What Our Patients Have To Say

A Word From Those We Have Helped Along The Way

“My husband and I knew we were at risk for passing on a fatal inheritable disease, and appreciated Erin’s expertise and guidance in the prenatal testing process. While Erin has a solid understanding of the science behind genetics, her ability to explain that science in a sensitive, meaningful way helped our family feel comfortable and confident making informed decisions.” - Jenni

“Erin called us a few hours after we found out about the diagnosis. We were confused and upset and getting to talk to an actual person right away was incredibly comforting. She was with us through the entire journey as we learned more about the diagnosis and became a support we could count on always. We will never forget her. She was wonderful. I’m so glad that she was there to help guide us.” - Sarah
