Screening for you and your partner. Most babies are born healthy. However, everyone has genetic mutations which can be passed on to his or her baby. Carrier screening can help determine if your child is at risk for specific disorders such as cystic fibrosis. Carrier testing is usually performed on you first. If the test is positive, your partner should be tested.
Screening for your baby. With a simple routine blood draw early in your pregnancy, NIPT screening will check the genetic health of your baby and rule out some specific conditions that could affect your baby’s health and development.
Genetic information and knowledge is changing rapidly, and understanding your genetic testing choices can be complicated, so it is important to have a trusted source for gaining answers to your questions.
Our expert, board-certified genetic counselors work with you and your doctor to help you understand your genetic risks and testing options. You may talk with a genetic counselor when you are considering genetic testing, or to discuss the results of your genetic testing.
