Prenatal Genetics

Provides genetic assessment, genetic counselling, screening, and diagnosis to individuals with pregnancies at risk for birth defects or genetic conditions.

The goal of prenatal genetic counselling is to provide information and support to pregnant women/couples and their families who may have an increased chance of having a child with a birth defect or genetic condition.

Prenatal genetic counsellors/geneticists help you understand the medical information more clearly and support you in making personal decisions about the health of your pregnancy.

Prenatal genetic counsellors/geneticists also help individuals who are not pregnant but have concerns about having a child with a genetic condition, because of their own health or their family history.

For more information visit the Clinical & Metabolic Genetics website.
