If you are pregnant or planning a pregnancy this talk is for YOU! Come learn key info on how you can be informed and empowered to make the best decisions for you.
Women deserve to enter their pregnancies feeling confident and informed. When you find out you’re pregnant, doctors’ appointments and information about how to keep you and baby healthy comes quickly and can be overwhelming. We most often think about the best foods to eat, how to stay healthy, and research the safest baby products. However, this also includes making informed decisions on the testing options presented early in pregnancy. Understanding testing options and potential results in advance gives you the opportunity to have more meaningful discussions with your healthcare team and make the best decisions for yourself and growing family. Learning this information in advance in a calm, relaxed environment keeps you in the loop, reduces anxiety, and can ultimately improve outcomes.
In this introductory session, we will review:
Simplistic, yet detailed overview of genetic testing options that are available in the preconception and prenatal period.
Discuss what questions you need to ask yourself so that you choose the right test for you.
What red flags to look out for in your family health history
At the end of this session you will:
Feel more informed and confident about what to expect from prenatal visits
Be prepared with specific questions for your doctor so that you can have more meaningful discussions and maximize your appointment time
Be empowered to make the best decisions for YOU through education and awareness
