Genetic counseling and screening options

Genetic assessment and counseling during pregnancy

Our board-certified genetic counselors will work with you to determine the identifiable risk factors involved with your pregnancy.

Who should consider prenatal genetic counseling?

  • Women aged 35 and older
  • Women who have had abnormal results from prenatal screening tests
  • Women concerned about an exposure, such as medications or infection, during pregnancy
  • Couples with a family history of a genetic condition
  • Couples who have experienced multiple miscarriages
  • Couples who have experienced infertility
  • Women who are known carriers of a genetic condition

Your genetic counselor will explain:

  • The risk of fetal abnormalities and further testing options
  • The chromosome abnormality, birth defect or genetic condition of concern
  • The factors involved in decisions about carrier or prenatal testing

If you choose to undergo testing, your genetic counselor will:

  • Coordinate the tests within Legacy Health
  • Share the test results with you and your referring physician
  • Provide resources and educational materials
  • Help educate you to make the best decision for your family
