Northern Genetics Service

Preconception Counselling and Pregnancy

GPs are regularly consulted by women or couples who want to start a family or to have more children, and are asking for advice.

This provides an opportunity to assess a woman's and her partner’s health and provide information that can help the woman and her partner make choices.

This is particularly important if there is a known genetic condition within the family.
