If you are pregnant
Clinical Genetics accepts referrals for individuals or couples who have an increased likelihood of having a child with a genetic condition, based on a known or suspected genetic diagnosis in the parent, family, or current pregnancy.
We do not provide a service to pregnant women with a high risk due to advanced maternal age or first trimester screening investigations, who have not yet had a diagnostic test.
If you or your patient is pregnant and require more information regarding whether to refer for a genetic consultation, please contact the genetic counsellor on call on
9463 1727, who can provide further information.
If you wish to refer a patient in pregnancy, please call us beforehand at 9463 1727 and ask to speak to the genetic counsellor on call. Please ensure you state clearly that the patient is pregnant.
