Why do Carrier Testing?

A. To allow women and families to be informed of the risk of having an affected male child.

B. By excluding someone from being a carrier, they can be reassured about their pregnancy and health of any male child.

C. By diagnosing someone as being a carrier we are informing them that any male child would have a 50/50 chance of having haemophilia, and that this would be a lifelong disorder.

D. If your daughter is a carrier, this will allow her to educate herself about Haemophilia and prepare for the prospect of having children with haemophilia.
