This week Molly ponders PGT-A, Preimplantation Genetic Testing for Aneuploidy (the latest version of PGS). PGT-A helps doctors identify abnormal embryos before transferring them into the uterus to help avoid failed cycles, miscarriages, or having a child with severe health problems. Sounds great, right? But not all doctors are on board with it. What’s the deal?! Why?! Molly digs deep to get to the bottom of her own feelings about PGT-A with the help of doctors, listeners, strangers from the internet and friends of the podcast.
