The Fertility Tales; breaking down the barriers around fertility

Posted: 23/05/2022 1:48:19 PM
Even in 2022, fertility is often a taboo topic that many shy away from. At Genea, we want to break these barriers, open up the conversation and reshape how people think and talk about fertility and infertility.
That’s why we launched The Fertility Tales, the first magazine of its kind in Australia.  It’s a fertility specific magazine produced by AllBright and sponsored by Genea, to facilitate discussion around fertility, genetic testing and more.

The Fertility Tales contains many moving stories about women who have struggled to conceive, advice on how to mentally and physically prepare for IVF, the importance of genetic testing, surrogacy, adoption, the loss of miscarriage and more.

Pregnant women undergoing unnecessary invasive procedures

Posted: 31/01/2022 9:27:38 AM
GeneSyte is a non-invasive genetic prenatal screening test which can be done as early as 10 weeks or at any time throughout pregnancy.  It takes a sample of the mothers blood which contains the baby’s DNA and can accurately detect chromosomal changes in the baby during pregnancy.
 
A recent study of 1,000 pregnant women demonstrated the accuracy of GeneSyte  by identify that 42 women would have been incorrectly classified as high risk and referred for CVS (Chorionic Villus Sampling) or Amniocentesis where only 5 pregnant women actually needed such invasive diagnostic testing.

Lets talk about Sex: Where do babies come from?

Posted: 1/02/2021 5:45:35 PM
One child in every classroom is conceived outside the bedroom, not on a park bench, not on a beach, not in the back of a car- in a laboratory, in the confines of an incubator, with the help of doctors, nurses and scientists. 
It is the untold story of conception that we are not sharing with our kids but that’s about to change. Fertility clinic Genea are breaking the taboo and shaking up the conversation with the launch of a new film and children’s book explaining where some babies come from.
