Delivering Reproductive Genetics
Reproductive genetic testing provides valuable insights to help patients and providers understand reproductive risks, discuss options and make decisions for family planning and pregnancy.
For patients who want to gain insight into the health of their baby during pregnancy, there are many genetic screening and diagnostic testing options available. We can provide expert guidance to explain testing options so your patient can make informed decisions.
Reproductive Genetics By the Numbers
Prenatal Screening and Diagnostic Testing in Pregnancy
We can support you in providing genetics care to your patients who are planning to become pregnant, are currently pregnant, or are experiencing fertility issues.
Our seasoned genetic counselors provide consistent, accurate counseling on options for reproductive screening and diagnosis. Following testing, we help patients understand their results with recommendations for next steps.
Preimplantation Genetic Testing
If a patient has been recommended preimplantation genetic testing (PGT), our genetic counselors can help the patient understand the testing and what the results mean.
Preconception Carrier Screening
For those at increased risk of having an affected child, our genetic counselors will discuss:
- Potential patient-specific risk factors to be considered
- Recommendations for testing the reproductive partner
- Recommendations for other members of the family
- Reproductive options such as in vitro fertilization with preimplantation genetic testing, egg/sperm donation, or diagnostic testing during pregnancy.
