Prenatal Genetic Counseling

15 July 2021
Prenatal Genetic Counseling: Practical Support for Prenatal Diagnostics, Decision-making, and Dealing with Uncertainty provides a foundation for new research and a one-stop source for physicians, genetic counselors, translational researchers, and administrators seeking to ethically implement clinical genomics. Here, an international team of experienced counselors and clinician-scientists lay out the range of methods and technologies applied in prenatal decision-making, including NIPT, invasive testing with microarray analysis or whole genome sequencing, ultrasound screening, and prenatal diagnosis for known hereditary conditions, among others. Other sections examine specific challenges in clinical translation, and in field, where decisions about life or death are made.
Accordingly, this book includes cases the authors found personally challenging, which are in turn analyzed by a psychologist and translated into practical suggestions for an improved counseling experience. Finally, an ending chapter discusses next steps in prenatal genetic counseling research and clinical implementation, noting which counseling practices are currently grounded in scientific research.
