Rebecca Freeman is a genetic counselor who cares for pregnant people and their families. She specializes in providing genetic counseling for people with high-risk pregnancies, particularly when ultrasound findings indicate a need for advanced care. Understanding that patients may feel shocked and isolated when they learn about a genetic condition affecting their pregnancy, she strives to provide care that is sensitive to past traumas and that will help families make informed decisions. She enjoys spending time with her patients to understand their unique needs, to educate them, and to guide them as they navigate complex medical care. She is passionate about supporting patients in their pregnancy journeys, wherever they choose to go.
Freeman's research interests include using bioinformatics in electronic health records to improve patient care. She also reports unusual cases with the goal of expanding scientific understanding of rare diseases. With a particular interest in supporting her profession, she enjoys teaching and supervising graduate students in genetic counseling.
Freeman earned a master's degree in genetic counseling at the University of California, Irvine. She has served in leadership positions in the National Society of Genetic Counselors and American Board of Genetic Counseling. As a Bay Area native, she is dedicated to improving access to genetic testing and counseling in the East Bay.
