Genetic Testing
Please can you advice me where the nearest genetic counsellor
would be for myself since I want a few tests to be done.
Prenatal test to ensure my baby will be fine.Any place near the Cape town region.

Please also advise me how far the test can show if my baby will be okay and does my husband need to be part of the test.

Dear Stac

Please contact the Dept of Genetics at the University of Cape Town. You could talk to Dr Ronnie Smart, he will give you the information on the risk implications and who should be tested.
