Prenatal Tests

The use of prenatal tests has become available since the 1980s and it can provide valuable information about the health of your baby.

Prenatal testing can be helpful in determining any special care your baby may require during pregnancy and after he or she is born.

Knowing about birth defects before your baby is born can also help you and your partner prepare for any challenges ahead.

As you consider which prenatal tests are appropriate for you, think about the risks and benefits of each.
