Prenatal Maternal and Fetal Genetic Testing
If you know genetic problems run in the family, we recommend prenatal genetic testing to help you understand any risks. Maternal carrier screening is a type of genetic test that can determine if you carry a gene for certain genetic disorders.

Once you are pregnant, we offer many types of prenatal diagnostics and testing to identify genetically based issues and other potential fetal chromosome problems:
