Here is What You'll Learn

What is Carrier Screening

Carrier screening is a test that can tell you whether you carry a gene for certain genetic disorders. When it is done before or during pregnancy, it allows you to find out your chances of having a child with a genetic disorder. Our doctor will discuss what this may mean for you and your partner and what the most common genetic disorders are.

Do both partners need to be screened?

Couples often ask whether both parents need to be tested. Our doctor will discuss how carrier screening works and what the odds are to your child.

What will happen if we elect NOT to have this test?

Carrier screening is an extra expense and we understand the hesitancy for not wanting to have it done. We will discuss whether or not this test is absolutely necessary or if some of couples can skip this test.

What is Pre - Genetic testing

Otherwise known as PGT. This test will obtain information about the genetic and chromosomal makeup of an embryo or egg prior to implantation. Our doctor will discuss the specific PGT types of testing and what that means for you.

What are the positive and negative consequences for PGT?

We will discuss the benefits of PGT including the improvement of the chances of pregnancy, lowering the risk of having a miscarriage and increased likelyhood of having a healthy baby.

Does this test put our embyro at risk?

We will discuss the process of PGT and what the risks are, if any, to the embryo.
