A tremendously specialized medical field, genetics is about heredity and certain risk factors involved in the genes. Every child inherits genes from both of their biological parents and these genes in turn express specific traits.
At Femmenest the information is provided by the counselor as to how certain genetic diseases might affect you and your family and what is the risk of transmission to your children.
It is done in those cases :
If There Is Family History Of Hereditary Disease In Your Family
If There Is History Of Affection Of Birth Defect Or Genetic Disease In The Previous Child
If There Is History Of Certain Findings On Ultrasound In The Present Pregnancy Which Can Point Towards A Genetic Disorder.
Abnormal Screening Results Or Invasive Testing Results
After counseling, a repeat scan or certain tests might be prescribed.
During pregnancy, three-four ultrasounds may be done at different stages of development of the baby:
Early viability scan – This is usually done during early pregnancy to look at the site of the pregnancy, the number of gestational sacs, the cardiac activity of the foetus, gestational age and other structures like the uterus and the ovaries. The scan helps to date the foetus.
NT Scan – It is done between weeks 11 and 13 of pregnancy to rule out the presence of any syndromes like Down’s syndrome. This test is done when the baby measures somewhere between 45 mm and 84 mm in length.
Anomaly scan – This is done usually between weeks 18 and 20 to check the development of different organs of the baby like the heart, kidneys, spinal cord, brain, limbs, etc.
Fetal Echocardiography – Fetal echocardiography is a safe and effective way to assess the health of a developing baby. It can help detect potential problems so that they can be treated before birth. This makes fetal echocardiography an important tool in ensuring a healthy pregnancy and delivery.
Growth scan – This is done usually after week 30 to check the growth of the baby, checking the status of the placenta, amount of amniotic food, movements of the baby, the blood flow to the baby, and other essential parameters.
