Asesoramiento genético y diagnóstico prenatal

Toggle: English / Spanish

El asesoramiento genético (y diagnóstico prenatal) permite a los padres obtener conocimiento para tomar decisiones inteligentes con respecto a un posible embarazo y su desarrollo. Si se produce el embarazo, la pareja puede querer evaluar al feto a través del diagnóstico prenatal. El diagnóstico prenatal implica la evaluación de células fetales, líquido amniótico o membranas amnióticas para detectar anomalías fetales.
