Genetic counselors are health professionals who work as members of a health care team, providing information and support to individuals who may be considering genetic screening or testing, or may be at an increased risk for certain genetic conditions based on personal or family health histories.

For example, a prenatal genetic counselor can help any woman going through pregnancy understand her testing options. A brief discussion with a genetic counselor can give people the knowledge they need to make the best testing and screening choices for themselves. Genetic counselors also provide support to families throughout this process.
