Prenatal Diagnostic Program

parental

Our Prenatal Diagnostic Program is designed to assist your current pregnancy care team in providing advanced prenatal genetic testing and risk assessment in pregnancies that may have higher risk.  We work with maternal-fetal medicine specialists, to identify the best possible method of diagnosis for you and your baby.

Innovation is the cornerstone of what we do.  We offer sensitive managed care for high risk pregnancies.  We offer some of the earliest screening through Non-Invasive Prenatal testing for Down Syndrome, Trisomy’s and other fetal abnormalities in an unborn baby.

WE SPECIALIZE IN:

  • High Risk Pregnancies
  • Genetic Counseling
  • Early Screening for Abnormalities 

Genetic Counseling

Most couples will receive genetic counseling.  This counseling session will discuss risks as well as the care needs for children with a birth defect or genetic disorder.
