Is NIPT right for me?

NIPT is an excellent option to learn more about the genetic health of your pregnancy.

NIPT may be right for you if:

  • You want more information about whether a genetic condition is present in your pregnancy

  • You are concerned about a genetic condition in your baby

  • You are unsure if you want invasive diagnostic testing (like amniocentesis or CVS)

  • You want the most accurate prenatal aneuploidy screening test for chromosomal conditions

  • Your doctor has recommended it for you

  • Talk to your doctor to learn more about whether NIPT is right for you.
