Congratulations! You are pregnant.
Probably all parents-to-be wonder if their child will be born into this world healthy.
Your doctor will inform you about the possibilities available for checking the health of your unborn child in the womb. Medicine calls these examinations prenatal. The majority of prenatal examinations report no anomalies, which also contributes to reducing anxiety and to a problem-free pregnancy.
One important element of prenatal diagnostics is the test for detection of the three most common fetal chromosomal abnormalities: trisomy 21 (Down’s syndrome) – one of the most commongeneticdisorders, trisomy 18 (Edward’s syndrome),andtrisomy 13 (Patau’s syndrome).
If you and your doctor decide to have your unborn child tested for these chromosome mutations, the non-invasive PrenaTest® is a risk-free alternative to amniocentesis (invasive amniotic fluid test). This latter is associated with a miscarriage rate of approximately 1%, while the PrenaTest® can establish with a great degree of certainty and with no risk for the mother and for the baby whether the unborn child has one of the trisomies listed above or not.
