What is a preconception consultation?
Preconception consultation is a service offered to couples trying to get pregnant but whose pregnancy would be considered high-risk. The determining factors for a high-risk pregnancy can range from the mother’s age to both parents’ medical and family health history. When you schedule a consultation with Dr. Heather Stanley-Christian at Unity Maternal Fetal Medicine, you should come prepared to discuss your complete health history. Dr. Stanley-Christian will review your health history with you and provide direction for your next steps.

Genetic testing concerning pregnancy can be broken down into two categories: screening and diagnostic. Screening is recommended to couples who may be at risk to pass on inherited diseases to the fetus (i.e., cystic fibrosis, sickle cell anemia). Diagnostic tests can be given to confirm that a genetic disorder is present if that information is deemed important to you. Support is available to help you manage your pregnancy — you are not alone. Request a consultation with Dr. Heather Stanley-Christian.
