dc.description.abstract One of the most complicated aspects of life is bringing a new healthy life into the world. Beyond the actual birthing process, there are many considerations that need to be explored before the day of delivery. Prenatal counseling is a very important aspect of the birthing process that is often overlooked.Expectations: Women's Health and Birthing Center, stresses the importance of individual care. I will be volunteering there during the spring semester working with couples and counseling them about concerns that arise before delivery. Through this experience, I will compile a guide for prenatal counseling of both parents. This guide will include information about considerations that the parents-to-be should be aware of such as PKU, Alpha Fetoprotein screening, HIV, Rh incompatibility, Group B Streptococcus, ethnicity complications, Fetal Alcohol Syndrome, Cystic Fibrosis screening and other prenatal concerns. The guide will also include the consent forms for the HIV test and AFP test that are mandated by the state of Indiana along with tips for the counselor on each subject.The experience of counseling parents-to-be will prepare me with experience necessary for my future career as a genetic counselor. One day I hope to work as a prenatal/perinatal genetic counselor. I believe that this thesis project will not only benefit me in preparation for my career, but will also benefit future prenatal counselors.
