This week we are discussing genetic testing including karyotyping and PGT-A testing with Kathryn Hawes. Kathryn is a senior embryologist and genetic lead at the Lister Fertility clinic in London. And has kindly done talks for our community group and team of practitioners on the role of embryology in assisted conception.

  • What the implications are if issues are identified
  • Who should consider this type of testing 
  • PGT-A testing and it’s rise in popularity
  • What happens during PGT- A testing
  • PGT-A and why it’s still a red light on the HFEA
