Genetic Counseling Services at The Christ Hospital
During prenatal and preconception genetic counseling, our genetic counselors will ask about your health history, pregnancy history, and your family’s health history, so we encourage you to collect as much information as you can before your appointment.
Prenatal and reproductive genetic testing can include:
Carrier screening, which can tell you whether you or your partner carry or can pass on certain genetic disorders
Non-invasive prenatal testing, which can determine the risk for specific genetic conditions in pregnancy
Diagnostic tests that may confirm whether your child has a specific genetic condition
