  • My sister recently lost her unborn baby due to the baby having pentalogy of Cantrell. She was told by physicians here in the Philippines to get genetic counseling with regards to possible future pregnancies. I was wondering if there is a genetic counseling specialist on that disease that may help her and her husband. They are flying to the United States so can see someone there if possible. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you very much. Click here for answer
