In this webinar we will talk more about Huntington’s disease and starting a family.

It can be difficult to decide whether to have children or not. If you’re coming from a Huntington’s disease family – or a family with other genetic diseases – it can be even harder:

Should you try to conceive naturally, and accept the risk of a child inheriting the genetic condition? Should you undergo a test to find out if the developing embryo is affected? Should you seek pre-implantation genetic diagnosis? Or simply decide not to have children at all?

Rob Haselberg is in his 30s. He comes from a Huntington family and does not have any children. Astri Arnesen decided to have children 30 years ago while she was still at risk. Together, they will share their thoughts on starting a family: risks, benefits and everything in between.
