If you and your partner are newly pregnant, you may be amazed at the number and variety of prenatal tests available to you. Blood tests, urine tests, monthly medical exams, screening tests, and family history tracking — each helps to assess the health of you and your baby, and to predict any potential health risks.You may also have the option of genetic testing.
These tests identify the likelihood of passing certain genetic diseases or disorders (those caused by a defect in the genes — the tiny, DNA-containing units of heredity that determine the characteristics and functioning of the entire body) to your children.If your history suggests that genetic testing would be helpful, you may be referred to a genetic counselor. Or, you might decide to seek out genetic counseling yourself. It’s especially important to consider genetic counseling. In our hospital we offer Genetic counselling so that to avoid genetic disorder for newly born babies.
