What going to talk about?
We need to explore what makes you, you. Part of this includes asking questions about you and your family’s medical and genetic history and ethnic background. We’ll work together to build a family tree, which is a visual representation of:
•for generations of your family (that’s you, your parents’ generation, your grandparents, and also if you have kids, nieces or nephews).
•You and your partner’s families’ health history — that includes any major health problems and family members that passed away because of health issues.
•Your reproductive and pregnancy history — including any pregnancy or fertility problems that you’re aware of in yourselves, siblings or parents.
Why is this call even necessary?
We pair every member with a genetic counselor for mind full support and guidance every step of the way. It’s only when we can start to understand your motivations, expectations, and concerns can we tailor your experience with us to what’s relevant for you.
We’d love to get to know your preferences, experiences and what’s important to you. This way, we know how you like to receive info; deal with uncertainties and how to support you in making decisions that feel right for you.
We also know that having a genetic test can often be different from other health checks. So, in our session we’ll also cover:
How carrier screening works
What it can and cannot do
What to expect on your journey with Eugene
We also encourage you to ask us ‘Why’!
How does it all work?
We work hard to make it easy for you. Everything is at home; you can never leave your couch!
We video calls for appointments and we’ll ship you your kits for free (coz we’re nice like that). We also include a free session with your genetic counselor before we send you the kit. After your call, if you feel like the test is not right for you, we’ll refund you every dollar. Enroll Genealogy4u now!
Who should join the call?
First, we can’t wait to meet you at genealogy 4u! If you are planning on having genetic carrier screening with a partner it would be better if you are both on the call. We generally do video calls, and everyone can also dial in separately — just in case you and your partner are not together at the time of the call.
