Where can DP have full genetic screening for all mutations of cystic fibrosis?

They were done at our local FMU. They rang me this afternoon with the results of our tests but said there was nothing further to be done at the moment and not to worry. We're seeing the consultant again mid January but I'll be 28 weeks by then so the element of choice won't be here anymore.

They did give me a number to call should I have any questions. I guess my first question will be can they please test DP for all CF mutations?!

Why wouldn't they offer me that as standard seeing as I'm a carrier?

Can't you ask where you got your CF carrier testing carried out? They should be able to advise you.

They should also be able to advise you on the residual risk based on your negative carrier tests.

We had ours done on the NHS. DH carries a rare mutation, so I was checked for all forms.

I've just had the results back of a recent blood test and found out I'm a carrier for one of the common types of CF. Thankfully DP isn't a carrier of any of the common types but we want him to have a full screen to rule out the possibility of the baby having CF.

We live in Herts but can travel....
