Maybe you or a family member found out they are a Fragile X carrier and are trying to get pregnant, or you might be pregnant and have found out that your baby may have Fragile X syndrome. Whatever the case, we know you have a lot of questions, worries, anxieties, etc. Whether you are hearing this for the first time or you have a family history, here is the information for you.
Also, if you are pregnant and just found out you either are a premutation carrier or have the full mutation, please email the NFXF at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will get you connected with a genetic counselor right away.
