At IFM, we provide genetic counselling. This is a counselling process which helps the would-be parents to understand how genes work in building up various medical conditions in a baby, including specific congenital disabilities. There are several congenital disabilities and medical conditions that are running in your family due to the genetic effects. These medical conditions will be passed to the next generation due to the inborn connection with the family.
In case, your family history has specific health issues, or you have the risks of passing serious illness to your fetus due to genetic disorders, then it is better to ask for genetic counselling before you start your pregnancy planning. The counselling can be done once you become pregnant too. The experts will analyse your genetic conditions and find out the risks of congenital disabilities in your fetus.
Some common genetic conditions in India are Thalassemia, Sickle cell Disease, DMD, Huntington’s disease , Cystic Fibrosis , Spinal Muscular Atrophy , Inborn errors of metabolism, etc .
We have specially trained experts for this. Our institute has advanced procedures to examine genetic conditions.
At IFM, we have a team of experienced and dedicated doctors who will offer you that desired second opinion whenever you need them.
They will cross-check all your medical history, tests and recommendations . In this process, they may ask you to go for certain medical examinations depending upon your health and associated risks factors.
