For women and families experiencing uncertainty surrounding the potential risks or the diagnosis of a developmental abnormality, Ohio State’s Wexner Medical Center’s Genetics and Preconception Program provides personalized care, support and education.
Our genetics and preconception counseling team is led by a maternal fetal medicine physician who is dual board-certified in both medical genetics and obstetrics and gynecology. She is one of only 200 maternal fetal medicine doctors nationwide, and the only one in central Ohio, with these credentials to address high-risk obstetric complications, as well as pediatric and adult genetic medical conditions. Her expertise can help you better understand your risk of having a baby with a birth defect or genetic condition¾and better prepare you for what to expect when baby arrives.
Your care team also includes three board-certified prenatal genetic counselors that draw upon a collective 40 years of experience in the field. And, because we’re part of an academic medical center, you’ll have access to innovative research, medical expertise and the latest technologies and treatments. In fact, our maternal fetal medicine physicians are actively involved in clinical research and have participated in the development and testing of many of the screening procedures and treatments we offer.
