Why genetic testing is important
Genes are a wonderful, powerful thing. From eye colour to dimples – the genes we pass on influence how our children grow up.
We all carry gene variations, but when a partner or donor is a carrier of the same condition, there’s a 1 in 4 chance that your children could be affected by that condition.
It may be daunting, but knowing this risk can help you make empowered choices about how you plan your pregnancy, or even significantly reduce the risk of having a child affected by the condition.
Carrier screening delivered with care, convenience and compassion
Genetic carrier testing is for anyone who would like to have a family some day.
It tests you and your partner’s or donor’s DNA for variations that could cause a serious genetic condition in your child.
Eugene tests for conditions like cystic fibrosis, spinal muscular atrophy, kidney disease, and almost 300 more.

Is genetic screening and genetic carrier testing the same thing?
Who should get genetic carrier testing and when?
But there’s nothing to say you can’t find out your carrier status sooner. In fact, some people choose to test when planning their future or considering a long term relationship with a new partner.
While it can be daunting, knowing your risk in advance can help you make more informed pregnancy choices; and if necessary, significantly reduce your risk of passing on the condition.

Not all prenatal vitamins are created equal, which is why we created Kin’s Next-Gen Prenatal. Made with 12 essential ingredients, including bioavailable methylated folate, ours is backed by dietitians and designed to support both mum and baby when they need it most.
