Ease Your Worries Before Planning a Pregnancy With
Your DNA + Your Partner’s DNA = Your Baby’s DNA
Blood tests and health checkups are both tools that allow us to be aware of our current health condition. However, as a potential carrier, you will not display any symptoms that come with the particular disease. This is why it is important to test for genetic mutations before making the big decision to conceive.
Our DNA Explorer Carrier package provides just that! The package includes a comprehensive description of your potential carrier genes and individual comments from a genetic counsellor.
Did You Know?
We All Carry Gene Variants & It’s Normal
However, carriers of recessive genetic disorders typically do not show any symptoms, so you won’t know if it’s there.
Some Gene Variants Affect Our Children
When both parents are carriers of the same disorder, there is a 25% chance that their child would inherit the disorder.
Family History Is Not Everything
Most children with inherited genetic disorders have no known family history. Thus, it may be shocking for parents when their child is diagnosed with genetic disorders.

Why It Is Important To See A Genetic Counsellor
Results from the carrier test can be quite difficult to comprehend. Although there are many online services that offer tutorials, they cannot rival the immense knowledge that a genetic counsellor will possess. Genetic counsellors are experienced in the field, they interpret your results and give you advice accordingly. They are able to answer your genetic-related questions, from the most basic ones, such as “What are mutations?” to the more robust ones.
If you receive a positive result, they can offer you a sympathetic ear and assist you in managing your emotions. When there is a need for healthcare providers or even support groups, they will point you in the right direction.
