Our Approach to Preconception Screening and Genetic Counseling

Genetic screening and counseling can help you discover unknown health problems and inherited conditions that may complicate your pregnancy. Because many conditions are detectable via a blood test, the screening process is often simple and virtually painless.

Your doctor will typically screen for the following conditions:

  • Rubella
  • Sexually Transmitted Infections (STIs)
  • Genetic disorders, such as cystic fibrosis, sickle cell anemia or fragile X syndrome
  • Other issues, such as hepatitis
