Introduction: Obstetric practice has branched to several spheres. Fetal medicine and genetics have now become an important part of high-risk obstetric practice. The importance of a detailed history can never be overemphasised. Pedigree charting greatly assists clinicians in history taking and deciphering not only the chance of a disorder being genetic but also the type of the disorder. This gives at a glance the family tree and disorders running in the family.
