Genetic Counseling and Examinations

In our clinic, patients consults geneticist Dr. Liene Kornejeva

It is important for patients, with ongoing pregnancy to undergo genetic counseling, if:

  • One of the family members has a known genetic disease or confirmed chromosomal abnormality
  • History of one or more spontaneous abortions
  • Structural abnormalities of the fetus have been found during ongoing pregnancy
  • There have been changes in first trimester screening
  • Congenital or chromosomal diseases of the fetus have been found

What is genetic screening?

Genetic screening is a precise and well-timed discovery of possible genetic disorders in a fetus (Down syndrome etc.). Persons with positive or suspicious results are sent to the doctor to establish a diagnosis and further treatment tactics.

Who is in the high risk group?

A patient in the risk group is one for whom there is a higher possibility that any of pregnancy/fetal/childbirth pathologies will develop than for others. It does not mean that if the patient belongs to risk group, pathology will definitely develop, although during prenatal care it is important to pay special attention to diagnoses of pathologies in proper time to prevention of pregnancy complications.

At the same time, patients who do not fit in the risk group may develop prenatal/fetal/childbirth pathologies, but the risk is significantly lower.
