  I think I might be pregant and we both have sickle cell trait. What can be done to prevent the baby from having the severe form of the diease?

Sickle cell disease is a potentially serious condition that affects red blood cells. Having the sickle cell trait means that you carry the gene for the disease, and your baby has a 1 in 4 chance of having the condition and a 1 in 2 chance of being a carrier (otherwise known as having the trait). You cannot stop your baby having the condition, but prenatal diagnosis by chorion villus sampling from 11 weeks onwards or by amniocentesis from 15 weeks, can establish whether the baby is unaffected, is a carrier or has the disease.
