Considering having a baby? Carrier screening is for you
Keeping your baby healthy is in your genes
In relationships, it’s great to have things in common. But when it comes to your genes, sometimes differences are a good thing.
Most of us are “carriers” of hidden DNA changes that don’t affect our own health. But if you and your partner are both carriers of the same condition, your future child could be at risk.
Comprehensive testing, made easy
The Invitae Comprehensive Carrier Screen checks your DNA for over 280 genetic conditions including cystic fibrosis, Tay-Sachs disease, fragile X syndrome, and spinal muscular atrophy.
This is the same test your Ob-Gyn may offer at your 8-week appointment—but there’s no reason to wait. The sooner you know your results, the better.
How testing works
Step 1Request a test online. An independent clinician will review and approve your order.
Step 2Provide a saliva sample from the comfort of your home and ship it to our lab.
Step 3Get your results and share them with your doctor. If you'd like, talk to a genetic counselor at no extra cost.
