Prenatal Assessment Center
All women in pregnancy will be offered prenatal genetic testing. Any and all testing is optional; decisions about genetic testing in pregnancy are expected to be made by the individual patient. OB providers and/or a genetic counselor can help patients make decisions about testing.
We invite you to view the following presentations regarding information about prenatal genetic testing options, conditions being tested, and how to decide which testing may be best for you in your pregnancy. Women of all ages are encouraged to view these videos early in pregnancy (after pregnancy has been confirmed and before her new OB appointment).
Individual prenatal and reproductive genetic counseling is available for patients to discuss the significance of family members with genetic conditions, congenital anomalies (changes in physical or intellectual development), abnormal test results, new genetic diagnoses and to discuss genetic testing options or results. If you wish to see a genetic counselor, please talk with your regular OB provider to request that a referral for Genetic Counseling be entered for you. During your genetic consultation, you will be asked about the medical history of family members for you and your partner, including children, siblings, aunts, uncles, cousins, and grandparents. Please print, complete the Prenatal History Form
and bring it with you to your appointment.
