Prenatal Testing
Your physician may refer you to us for prenatal testing if you are older, have a family or medical history that could affect your pregnancy, or after seeing the results of other, routine tests. Most test results are reassuring but if a problem with your pregnancy is detected, we offer counseling to explain the problem and what can be done.

Women & Infants has been an international pioneer in the research of tests that can be used prenatally to diagnose problems or direct appropriate care for the mother and fetus.

The Prenatal Diagnosis Center offers a variety of prenatal tests that your doctor might want you to have. Our genetic counselors can meet with you before and after the testing to explain any problems and what can be done.

Online Referrals

Women are referred to the PDC by their health care providers. Some tests at the center are preceded by a consultation with one or our genetic counselors. Test results are communicated to the woman and her health care provider directly. If there is a need for further counseling or testing, these will be arranged in cooperation with the patient and her referring health care provider.
