Prenatal Genetic Counseling

Pre-conception counseling gives you the opportunity to meet with a genetic counselor or maternal-fetal medicine specialist prior to pregnancy to learn about potential risks for a future pregnancy and to clarify options prior to conception. If appropriate, you may receive suggestions for screening tests or suggestions for which exposures to avoid prior to and during a pregnancy.

Prenatal diagnostic and screening tests: Testing option to screen or detect chromosomal problems and/or gauge development include:

  • Amniocentesis
  • Chorionic Villus Sampling (CVS)
