Benefits of Non-Invasive Prenatal Testing (NIPT) For expecting parents, preparing for a new baby is one of the most exciting times in their lives. However, the “what-ifs” can easily make the experience daunting. While you’re preparing for everything the baby will need once he or she arrives, there is one more step you need to take to be fully prepared: non-invasive prenatal testing (NIPT) An NIPT accurately informs parents of their risks of having a baby born with a chromosomal condition, which could affect their development and quality of life. Don’t let the unknown about your baby’s genetic health take away from the excitement of your pregnancy. Ease your anxieties with NIPT testing – the results will allow you to make informed decisions about your future family. Couples who have a family history of chromosomal disorders or already have a child with a chromosomal disorder, will especially benefit from an NIPT test. Additionally, older women and women who test high risk on routine screening should also get tested. In fact the test can be offered to all pregnant women.
