Preconception and prenatal genetic screening tests can give you information about your risk for having a baby with a genetic or chromosomal problem. If you are a carrier or have an increased risk, then our genetic counselors and geneticists will review your risk and offer diagnostic testing. This information can help you make informed decisions and plan for your pregnancy.
