Welcome to ehealthforum.
You need to take all the recent reports with you especially the karyotyping, ultrasound and the blood test reports for the discussion.
In the counselling session they will tell you the risks and the possibilities of your children having any of the genetic or chromosomal abnormality.
Take care.
