Non Invasive Prenatal Diagnosis & Testing is possible in the early stages of family planning or pregnancy, helping to test for and diagnose any existing or hereditary medical conditions for both yourself, and your baby via a DNA sample.
What is None Invasive Prenatal Testing?
Non Invasive Prenatal Testing gives the opportunity for screening tests to take place for medical conditions. They are often recommended if you are a higher risk for specific medical conditions such as Down’s Syndrome, Edward’s Syndrome or Patau’s Syndrome. This does not mean that you cannot access these tests should you wish to dive into your own genetics in the family planning stages of your life. Peek A Baby offer a range of prenatal tests that are non invasive. They allow you to explore your genetics with a blood sample of buccal swab test.
They are designed in such a way that they look closely at the individual’s DNA, determining whether or not there are conditions to be aware of for either yourself, or for your future family. Because these tests are available for women before and during pregnancy, they are key to helping determine whether you want to have children because of a genetic condition, and if you do, what the chances are of your baby inheriting this from you.
Should I Invest in Prenatal Testing & Diagnosis?
It is estimated that 1 in 50 pregnancies are affected by a genetic condition. With this statistic in mind, it can be considered an important consideration and investment for those who want to expand their families.
Taking the time to do a non-invasive prenatal test can help make your decisions easier, potentially also helping ensure that you have peace of mind when making them for your future. All decision made are informed and made with a clear picture of your health.
Although Peek A Baby’s range of non-invasive prenatal tests are for genetic condition screening, they also offer an early gender DNA test that allows for gender determination from just 6 weeks! This is a blood test sample that looks at the chromosomes in fetal DNA to determine Y chromosome presence.
