Autism

Hi Gynaedoc

just wanted to find out if there is any genetic testing that can be done during pregnancy to find out if your unborn child carry's the gene for autism, the reason for my concern is that i have bipolar and i have read that as a result of this my unborn child might be predisposed to the condition.

Thanks in advance
