Prenatal genetic testing gives parents information about whether their fetus has certain genetic disorders. Disorders that result from a change in a person’s genes or chromosomes, such as down syndrome. It can also test to see if your fetus is at risk for inherited disorders such as cystic fibrosis or sickle cell anemia.
There are 2 types of genetic testing options. Screening tests and diagnostic tests. Screening tests tell you your risk of having an abnormality and diagnostic tests tell you IF there is an abnormality. Both types of tests are offered to all pregnant women.
Genetic testing is always a personal choice. Your provider may recommend it if you have certain risk factors.
