    Prenatal tests are different procedures that make sure you and the fetus are healthy. Some prenatal tests find birth defects and other problems. Your doctor, nurse, or midwife may suggest prenatal testing at certain times during your pregnancy, to make sure you’re healthy and that your fetus is. You've already mastered your first prenatal test: peeing on a stick! And it looks like you've passed with flying colors. Now onto the other tests that will help you get to know your baby-to-be better, including new noninvasive prenatal tests (NIPT) that are more accurate and safer than ever. Here's your go-to guide for prenatal tests and screenings to ensure a healthier pregnancy and delivery.

At your first prenatal visit, your health care provider will test for a number of things, including problems with your blood, signs of infections, and whether you are immune to rubella (German measles) and chickenpox.

A bearded dude in an "Ithaca is Gorges" tee shirt had parked his cart in front of the birth control. Arrange collection and pay for your Harmony® non-invasive prenatal test. Non-invasive prenatal testing (NIPT) is a specialist service that requires pre-payment before you undertake your testing.
