Conceiving a healthy baby

healthy baby

Did you know that now, thanks to medical and genetic advances and new technologies, it is possible to identify the embryos that carry a specific genetic disease or a chromosome anomaly, being able to select the healthy ones and allowing us to conceive a healthy baby that is free from genetic disorders?

We can all agree that couples who are thinking of having a child want it to be completely healthy and, therefore, free from genetic or hereditary disorders or diseases.

At PGD Labs Kuwait we help couples conceive children who are free from genetic alterations, whether they have a high risk of giving birth to a baby that is affected by some kind of genetic disorder, because they have it themselves or because they carry the gene, and even if they are affected by none of these conditions.

Our genetics center located in Kuwait, the Al Seddiq Medical Laboratory, is equipped with the most cutting edge technology currently on the market. Our staff, composed of European biologists, is constantly training to stay up-to-date on all industry advances and be able to provide the best solutions to our patients, always with a personalized service and providing the care that they need.

Diagnostic methods for a healthy baby

Couples that have been identified as carriers of a clear genetic disease or chromosome disorder can be offered the PGT-M or PGT-SR methods.

  • PGT-M, Preimplantation Genetic Testing for Monogenic Diseases. Formerly known as PGD, this is a diagnosis that we perform on the embryo before transferring it to the uterus. The test consists of analyzing the DNA of the embryos to detect those that have inherited a genetic mutation. In this case, during the IVF procedure, we implant the one that has not been affected, and discard the ones that have.
  • PGT-SR, Preimplantation Genetic Testing of Chromosomal Structural Rearrangements. Here, this technique is used to avoid the risk of conceiving a baby with unbalanced structural anomalies. The embryos that have been developed during In Vitro Fertilization are analyzed to implant those that are considered to be chromosomally healthy.

At PGD Labs we painstakingly study each patient’s case to provide counseling and perform the treatment and method that is most appropriate to conceive a healthy baby. Our entire staff specializes in reproductive genetics, which means that we offer you the reliability that you need throughout the entire process, from the pre-analysis to the implantation of the embryo.
