HIGH-RISK PREGNANCY

Prenatal Counseling

As modern medicine advances, more and more information becomes available regarding how diseases are inherited, and parents are given different choices to make about the health of their child even before he/she is born. In some cases, a prenatal diagnosis can be made by testing fetal cells, amniotic fluid, or amniotic membranes to detect fetal abnormalities in the womb. Prenatal counseling gives parents the information they need to make informed choices. Listed in the directory below, you will find some additional information regarding prenatal counseling.
