Ep. 12 – What’s In Your Genes? The Importance of Genetic Carrier Screening

Why do I need genetic carrier screening? What does it mean to be a genetic carrier? What diseases are you at risk of passing along to your child? These questions and more will be answered and discussed in this episode of Focus on Fertility as we are joined by genetic counselor, Jennifer Siegel, of Sema4.

Your genes and those of your partner will lead to the DNA makeup of your off-spring. What is inside yours and your partner’s genes could greatly impact the health of your child and knowing what’s inside of these genes is crucial.
