At Baylor Medicine, our prenatal and reproductive genetic specialists provide unparalleled expertise to help individuals understand the risks posed by a genetic condition, either in the parents or their fetus, both before and during pregnancy. Our experts then provide guidance and support to help these patients navigate the genetic testing services available to evaluate those risks and provide resources to help families manage and adjust to a genetic diagnosis.
Our team includes board-certified medical geneticists and genetic counselors with specialized training in prenatal and reproductive genetics. We are here to provide information and answers, help families prepare for the needs of their baby, and help couples plan for future pregnancies.
Our specialists are routinely recognized for excellence in their field and for the compassionate, supportive care they provide to patients facing pregnancies involving congenital anomalies and genetic conditions.
As Baylor College of Medicine faculty members, our physicians and genetic counselors are also highly respected researchers, collaborating with investigators around the world to advance the complex field of prenatal genetics. Today, we are improving the detection of genetic abnormalities in the fetus, studying the causes and impact of genetic disorders, and investigating new technologies for use in non-invasive prenatal testing.
