Family Planning
160+ reports

Protect your family, right from the start.

Pregnant, or thinking of starting a family? Take the first step towards securing your family's health with Circle's Family Planning DNA test -  designed to provide genetic insights on whether you and your partner carry inherited conditions that may be passed to your unborn child.

Many of us are carriers of inherited conditions and simply don't know it. Over 80% of children with inherited conditions are born to parents with no known family history. If you and your partner are carriers of the same condition, there are important steps you can take to improve your future family's well-being, whether you're pregnant or planning a pregnancy.

The best gift you could ever receive is the peace of mind and assurance of your child's health. Discover actionable insights that help you protect your family's health, based on your DNA.

Valuable insights
Work with your healthcare provider to plan the best path for your pregnancy and birth, especially if you and your partner carry the same mutation.

What your results mean for you

A negative result means that you have a significantly reduced risk of being a carrier of that disease.
A positive result means that you tested positive as a carrier of a genetic disease. This does not guarantee that your children will or will not inherit that condition.
If you’re planning a pregnancy...
Before you become pregnant, there are several options that you and your partner can consider to reduce the chances of having an affected pregnancy.
Consider in vitro fertilisation (IVF)
With IVF, a fertility specialist can look at the genes of your embryos and implant only those that will not be affected by the inherited condition. This is called pre-implantation genetic testing for monogenic/single gene diseases, or PGT-M.
Consider other options
If both prospective parents are carriers for the same condition, you can greatly reduce the risk of having an affected child by finding an egg or sperm donor does not carry the same mutation. Many couples also consider adoption.
If you’re already pregnant...
Diagnostic tests such as chorionic villus sampling (CVS) or amniocentesis can determine if your child is positive for the condition you carry. If this is the case, there are several options that can make a difference to your and your child’s well-being.
Speak to a specialist
Knowing your child requires a certain kind of care means you can involve the right specialist, even before delivery. For some conditions, there are treatments that can make a significant difference in outcome if pursued early.
Find the right place to deliver
Depending on what your baby is at risk for, you might want to look for a specialised facility that is equipped to manage newborns with inherited conditions.
Surround yourself with support
We understand that a positive result may cause parents-to-be worry and stress; it may be helpful to talk with one of our genetic counsellors or a support group to understand the journey ahead.
