Hi,
During chromosomal translocation, pieces of chromosomes are rearranged but there is no genetic material that is gained or lost in the cell.  It is important to determine if both parents have history of translocation also and to have further evaluation by a geneticist.  In most cases of balanced translocation, the baby will be unaffected and may not be symptomatic. However, there is a risk that the chromosome breaks have disrupted important genes or that the breakpoints are not as clean as they appear. Congenital ultrasound scans are needed to determine any physical abnormalities. It is best that you talk to your attending physician or be referred to a geneticist for proper evaluation. Take care and best regards.
