Hereditary possibilities

If you feel you’re personally and financially ready for this adventure, there are some serious realities to consider as well. It’s important to look into the hereditary possibilities from both sides of the family.

You may want to consider the possibility of genetic conditions and disorders being passed on to your baby and whether you’re okay with the risk and the added responsibility of specialised care.

If you have any concerns, visit your healthcare provider or a reproductive health facility close to you.
