Genetic Counseling

Genetic counselors have advanced training in medical genetics and are able to assist in:

  • Interpretation of family and medical histories to assess the risk for diseases with a strong genetic component and the chance of recurrence
  • Discussion of genetic disease inheritance, management, prevention, and resources
  • Education about genetic tests and interpretation of results
  • Individualized counseling to promote informed genetics-related decision-making

In a pre-conception setting, such as during ART/fertility treatment, genetic counseling is focused on reproductive risk and involves meeting with you and your partner (if applicable) to discuss topics such as:

  • Risk to offspring for autosomal dominant, autosomal recessive, and X-linked disorders
  • Translocations and chromosomal variants
  • A family history of genetic disorders
  • Carrier screening results
  • Selection of a genetically compatible egg or sperm donor
  • Age-related risks for chromosome abnormalities (aneuploidy) in offspring
  • Preimplantation Genetic Testing (PGT), including aneuploidy (PGT-A), known parental mutations (PGT-M), and structural rearrangements (PGT-SR)
