What Is Genetic Counseling
Genetic counselors provide information and offer support by simplifying genetic concepts into useful information. A genetic counselor can meet with a person or family that may be at risk for an inherited disease or abnormal pregnancy outcome. The information provided in a session can help individuals make informed and personal decisions about their own health, their pregnancy and genetic testing.

What Happens at a Counseling Appointment?
When you go to see a genetic counselor, he or she:
- Will record your family history and your own medical background
- Will put together a picture of how your family`s health may affect your children
- May review testing options available in the context of your family planning goals and ethical and religious beliefs
- Will help you and your physician/provider interpret medical information and the role of heredity as it applies to your family
- Review of testing results will be coordinated between the genetic counselor, the person or couple and the referring physician/ provider. In the event of troubling results, the counselor will provide information to help make decisions that best fit your needs. The counselor can also refer you to resources in your community including medical specialists or family support groups that deal with specific genetic conditions.
