Genetic Counseling Picture

Prenatal Genetic Counseling

When issues arise in a pregnancy, it’s important to be able to sit down and talk with an expert who can answer questions and provide comfort.

At Perinatal Associates of New Mexico, we offer genetic counseling from a board-certified genetic counselor and/or a board-certified clinical geneticist-physician that will help you understand the risk for birth defects or genetic disorders in your current pregnancy and will discuss the best steps for you and your family.

We want our patients to make informed decisions that reflect their own personal and cultural beliefs, values, and goals.

Women with the following risk factors may be candidates for genetic counseling:

  • Over the age of 35
  • Family history of birth defects or genetic disorders
  • Exposure to medications, drugs or chemicals
  • Abnormal AFP results
  • Multiple miscarriages
  • Diabetes

If further action is needed after counseling, our team of specialists offers testing such as ultrasounds and amniocentesis to determine if the current pregnancy may be affected.

 

Please let Dr.Brennan know that he was always my light on my darkest days! His kind demeanor always put me at ease when I was going through really stressful situations! I will forever be indebted to him and everyone at PANM. All of you helped make my dreams become a reality and I could never repay all of you for your amazing bedside manor! I have had the pleasure of getting to know every one of the doctors in the office and ever single one of them was wonderful! Dr. Ruma, is seriously one of the smartest men I’ve ever met. Dr Joffe is also brilliant! I have never seen anyone “know his stuff” like Dr. Argubright! But I will always for ever and ever hold a special place in my heart for Dr. Brennan! Please give him a huge hug from me and let him know my Brody is just the light of this world and without his help…..well, all this awesomeness just wouldn’t be possible! Thank you so much all of you!
