“I believe we should have the opportunity to understand whether we are at a high risk of having a child with an incurable medical condition, given the the very significant emotional, physical and financial implications”

“The most difficult thought is that this situation was preventable with a simple blood or saliva test and if I’d known to ask for it, I would have”

The peace of mind that genetic testing provides is priceless. Thank you for offering such a great service to the community. Your genetic counsellor was friendly, caring and very informative in this sensitive area.
