Re: Prenatal & Genetic Testing?

Hi There,

 

It can be overwhelming when confronted with a load of tests. The tests that they offer are standard tests. You have the right to accept recommendation or refuse it. I was 36 when I had my first child and 42 when I had my last child. I consented to the testing for no other reason than wanting to prepare myself for any health issues that we might have been faced with.

 

These tests provide some information about the odds of you getting certain diseases, and they may tell you if you are a carrier of certain inherited diseases, but they're not diagnostic.

 

I hope that helps a little.
