genetics ?

I know this has been asked before but can't seem to find it... we have our first genetics appt the first week of August and I'm so nervous. What should I expect?

Re: genetics ?

  • Lots of questions regarding family history, an exam, and some blood work. Don't be nervous. But just make sure you bring lots of stuff for the LO. Good luck!

  • If you get all of your family medical history together ahead of time it will help a lot!! You know your baby the best so get a list together of what concerns you have. Don't be afraid to ask them a lot of questions too!

  • Agree with previous posters.


    TONS of questions def. bring toys/snacks/other things for your little one to do.  Our first appointment took 2 hours.

    They might do blood work (they did with ours) and a quick medical exam.
