Reproductive Genetic Services
Every parent hopes to have a healthy child. The good news is most babies are born healthy. However, some families planning to have children may be faced with the diagnosis of a genetic disease.
Although most babies are born healthy, genetic diseases are not uncommon. In fact, a significant proportion of childhood birth defects or adult onset chronic illnesses are due to genetic conditions. Increased risk for a fetal genetic abnormality may be due to family history of a hereditary disease, advanced maternal age during pregnancy, exposure to medications or environmental hazards, or other factors.
The Genetics & IVF Institute offers an exceptional range of genetic services. Genetic services assists people who seek answers about the usefulness of genetic testing during their family planning: before conception, during IVF treatments, in an ongoing pregnancy, or when they are seeking to understand pregnancy losses or recurrent miscarriages.
