Couples who are planning to have a baby by natural conception — or who are already expecting — generally take a set of screens, called panels, that focus on the most common genetic diseases. By taking our genetic profile, you can obtain a Discussion Guide to use with your doctor to help you choose which screens are best for you. Your needs will vary based on your age, ethnicity, and where you are in your reproductive journey. If you haven't already, scroll down to take the profile and obtain your own Discussion Guide.

What Is Genetic Screening?
Genetic screening is a way to look at your genes and detect if you are a carrier of an inherited genetic disease — such as cystic fibrosis — that you might pass on to your children. Other screens allow you to look for non-inheritable genetic conditions that can lead to conditions like Down syndrome.Learn More
