I am an obstetrician/gynecologist specializing in high-risk pregnancies. As such, I see many women who are faced with the daunting choices involved in genetic screening. The office setting simply does not allow sufficient time to address all the options available today. Karen’s book is an excellent resource for those who wish to make informed, intelligent decisions before they become pregnant. I highly recommend preconception genetic screening and counseling.
