In brief: Hypothetical? Real?

Most important is appropriate genetic counseling, a referral to a high-risk perinatologist or fetal radiologist to look for associated anomalies explained.
A clinical genetic referral is indicated to try to identify causation and recurrence risk, with a complete review of genetic family history. Genetic testing should be offered. Counseling will differ for 1st, 2nd, and -3rd trimesters.
