Dr Owen :

Hello

Dr Owen :

Well the risks for your baby to have genetic problems are about 1 in 40 - so not that high - but what I would suggest is doing a test that you can get done EARLY to check this

Dr Owen :

hello - are you there?

Dr Owen :

There is a special DNA test you can do - that uses YOUR blood and hence in your blood there are small pieces of baby blood and they use that baby blood to get baby DNA and hence test the baby DNA to check for any genetic abnormalities.

Dr Owen :

I hope that helps

Dr Owen :

and that way you have an early answer and you can use that information as you see fit.

Dr Owen :

I hope that helps
