PRENATAL TESTING

Non-Invasive Prenatal Testing (NIPT) utilises the discovery that an unborn baby’s DNA can be found in the pregnant mother’s blood. By extracting this DNA, and isolating the parts that belong to the baby, we can determine whether the baby is suffering from any one of a range of non-hereditary genetic conditions. The resolution of this test has now improved to the point that even relatively small changes in the baby’s DNA can be detected.

 

The test is now available from 9 weeks into the pregnancy, and is incredibly precise.

 

Prices start at US$ 70000
