Genetic testing before and during pregnancy

Find the right test for you

Whether you’re considering pregnancy or are already pregnant, Invitae offers the right tests to help guide both your health and the health of your future family.

I’m considering pregnancy

  • Carrier screening can determine your risk of passing a genetic condition on to a child, even if you do not have the genetic condition yourself. Carrier screening is recommended for anyone who is planning a pregnancy, as more than 80% of children with a genetic disorder are born to parents with no family history or symptoms of the disorder.1

  • Proactive cancer screening gives you the opportunity to learn how your genes could impact your risk of developing cancer, even if you do not have a personal or family history of cancer. If you are at increased risk, partner with your healthcare provider to initiate regular monitoring, lifestyle modifications, and even early intervention to prevent the onset of disease.

  • Non-invasive prenatal screening (NIPS) is a test used to determine if a baby has certain chromosome conditions that may affect its growth and development. NIPS testing only requires a maternal blood sample, so there is no risk of miscarriage. NIPS is also the earliest way to predict your baby’s sex.

  • Prenatal diagnostic tests determine whether your baby has certain medical conditions before you give birth. These tests are often recommended if a screening test revealed an increased risk for these conditions or if you are over the age of 35.

I’m undergoing IVF

  • Preimplantation genetic testing for aneuploidy (PGT-A) improves your chances of a successful pregnancy by screening embryos for the correct amount of chromosome material which are more likely to be good candidates for IVF transfer. Embryos with extra or missing chromosomes or chromosome segments are much less likely to result in a healthy live birth and may be unsuitable for IVF transfer.

I’ve experienced a pregnancy loss

  • Pregnancy loss analysis can provide much-needed answers by determining if a loss was caused by a chromosomal abnormality. Testing can also provide more information to help you get ahead of future risk and understand your family planning options.
