Genetic Counselor Visit

pedi-visit

This appointment was seriously a joke. I was so confused as to why our doctor thought we needed to go and visit these people. I thought they were going to be doing blood tests or something to that affect but no. It was a 5 minute conversation about everything the CF doctors have already told us. I don’t think the counselor quite new why we were there either.

She told us that if we want to have another baby we can do it the natural way or do IVF. If Meesha wants to have children she will need to get her partner tested because any child she has will automatically be a carrier. It raises the chances of her child having CF to 50% if the father is a carrier.

It was a fun trip downtown for nothing LOL
