Risk of genetic diseases with autosomal recessive or X-linked inheritance can be unknown to prospective parents until an affected child is born. New technology has enabled carrier screening for hundreds of genetic diseases (expanded carrier screening, ECS). I Denmark, each year estimated 100-180 children are born affected with a serious condition which could have been detected with ECS of the parents. This review describes the considerations and perspectives of a systematic genetic screening programme for prospective parents in the Danish healthcare system.
