Thoughts of Expanded Carrier Screening (ECS)

(IRB#: IRB_00163720)

Expanded carrier screening (ECS) is a type of genetic screening offered to people of childbearing age with information about recessive genetic conditions (2 nonworking copies of a gene that can cause a disorder). This issue does not affect the health of parents but may be passed on to affect the health of their baby. We want to learn the thoughts and feelings of women who are or may become pregnant about ECS. The information we gain may aid future patients.
