Women’s Care is the first physician-owned practice in the state of Florida to perform its own non-invasive prenatal test (NIPT). Our expert genetic counselors are proud to provide expectant mothers with Chroma™ prenatal screen testing to keep you informed about your baby’s genes from the very beginning stages of pregnancy.
This non-invasive prenatal test uses a blood sample from the mother to analyze DNA from the placenta for certain chromosome conditions that could affect a baby’s health. Learn more about our Chroma™ prenatal screen test below.
The Chroma™ prenatal screen test is for women of any age and ethnicity who are at least 10 weeks pregnant. If you would like more information about your baby’s health, talk with your Women’s Care provider. Your provider will advise you on what tests to take to help give you a peace of mind.
