This is an important procedure and one which back in the day was not available to couples and that is screening for genetic disorders. It would be easy to understand why this is not common knowledge because it is not or has not been part of the norm for preconception.
Genetic Screening is an important step particularly to find out if couples carry certain severe genetic disorders before they plan to have a baby.
It is very saddening to discover after the birth of a baby that precautions could have been taken or that there could be some helpful alternatives when a baby is born with a disorder.
Preconception screening for genetic disorders is really a must for ‘to be’ parents. We live in an exciting time of knowledge and it is best to make the most of what is understood at this moment in medical science.
