Reproductive carrier screening

Have you seen this? This little print-out could save you a good 30 minutes in valuable consulting time.

It’s the information from Sonic for couples who are planning a family about the potential value for testing their carrier status for conditions such as cystic fibrosis and fragile X.

Even though the information is coming from an organisation with a vested interest in promoting the testing, there is not even a suggestion of bias. It is all straight down the line – here are the risks – this is what is available for testing should you choose to pursue it.

There’s no denying it is worth considering. RANZCOG recommends that information about reproductive carrier screening be offered to every woman either prior to conception (preferred) or in early pregnancy.

Having this site bookmarked and ready to print off ensures your advice when advising women pre-conception is in keeping with best practice.
