Parenting is one of the most rewarding and challenging experiences a person can have.
By identifying any genetic conditions early on, you can take proactive steps to manage or treat them. Early detection can also allow you to make informed decisions about your child’s future health and well-being.
Baby Blueprint gives you information on more than 40 traits so you can decide whether to seek clinical screening, genetic counseling, or medical advice. Knowing that you have taken every precaution to ensure your child’s health and happiness can provide immense peace of mind.
With an in-depth understanding of your child’s genetic predispositions, you can tailor your approach to his or her health and well-being by making informed and proactive decisions about when to provide support, when to allow for growth and development, and when to back off.
If you’ve already gotten your child’s DNA tested by 23andMe, AncestryDNA, MyHeritage, Living DNA, or Family Tree DNA, you can upload the raw DNA file to Baby Blueprint to estimate your child’s baseline genetic risk for a variety of physical, health, and behavioral traits and conditions.
Keep in mind that direct-to-consumer genetic testing services like 23andMe, AncestryDNA, Living DNA, Family Tree DNA, and MyHeritage don’t test your whole genome – instead, they only test certain parts of your genome that they think might be important. Different companies test different parts of the genome so results might vary depending on which service you used.
Our algorithms “fill in” the missing parts using an industry-standard method called statistical imputation and then compare this imputed genome against carefully vetted studies from the NHGRI-EBI Catalog of Human Genome-Wide Association Studies to estimate your genetic predispositions.
Since Baby Blueprint results are based on direct-to-consumer data from providers like 23andMe, they are quite accurate for common genetic variants but not for rare genetic variants. For rare genetic variants, the false-positive rate can be very high. That’s why this is an educational resource and not medical advice.
Furthermore, genomic research continues to progress. That’s why you get direct links to the specific study tied to each Baby Blueprint result. That’s why we continually update the results to reflect the latest research results. That’s how we empower everyone – especially parents – with genomic information. For free.
A clear understanding of your child’s genetic makeup can reduce the stress and anxiety associated with parenting and allow you to focus on what truly matters: Providing a supportive, loving environment for your child.
Knowing your child’s genetic predispositions can help ease some parenting challenges. For example, if your child is genetically predisposed to need less sleep, that knowledge can help you adjust your expectations and focus instead on creating the best sleep environment for your child’s unique needs, leading to better sleep for your child — and lower stress and frustration for you.
Parents are often filled with anxiety and guilt due to the prevailing parent-blaming theories of socialization and the slew of how-to parenting books. By empowering you with your child’s genetic predispositions, Baby Blueprint can help you relax and enjoy your relationship with your child.
Check back often for new traits.
