What do we do? Fetal medicine is an upcoming branch of Obstetrics where the fetus is given the primary care right from screening to diagnosis and management of a fetal problem.Genetics is the science of heredity and variation. We inherit traits from our parents - these basic units of inheritance are called genes. Sometimes, these 'genes' are not passed on in the proper brm which can lead to 'genetic abnormalities' in the individual. Although some couples are at higher risk than the others, any individual can be affected by a 'genetic abnormality'. Our Geneticist offers counseling to such couples who are at 'increased risk' and helps in making diagnosis.
