Re: Genetic testing toddler
You are going to love your genetic counselor. We had one on our staff when I worked in a large, teaching hospital in the US in the High Risk Pregnancy unit. She was not a doctor, but she had a Master's degree in Genetic Counseling. She was like a combination social worker/doctor.
Her job was to meet with couples who had already been diagnosed during the pregnancy and knew that there was going to be a genetic problem with the baby. All of our patients who had to meet with her just thought she was awesome.
She served as a liaison between the doctors (highly technical and often rushed) and the patients. She took the time to explain everything in great detail in language that the patients could really understand. If you have been asked to see a genetic counselor, don't be afraid, be glad. This person will be a huge, positive resource for you as you move forward. Good luck in your onward journey!
