Dear Doctor,
Please see Mrs Black who is planning her first pregnancy. Her main concern is that her brother has cystic fibrosis.
This was the first time I had met her although she has been registered with us for 5 years – her health is good and she has no history of serious illness or surgery.
I have explained that I don’t know much about the implications of the brother’s cystic fibrosis for her potential pregnancies and that she needs to talk to an expert. I have stressed that the risk of her having a child with cystic fibrosis is high and that she needs to be aware that there is a distinct likelihood that any pregnancy would be likely to be affected and need TOP.
Yours sincerely,
John P. Clatter.
