As a part of your IVF treatment, you may choose to genetically test your embryos prior to implantation. There are many reasons for choosing to genetically test embryos including, a family history of a genetic condition, advanced maternal age or family balancing.
Genetically testing embryos can provide peace of mind when growing your family and also reduces the risk of miscarriage. Hear from our in-house certified genetic counselor, Lauri Black as she walks you through the ins and outs of genetic testing and the role of a genetic counselor during IVF.
