Prenatal Genetic Testing

Genetic testing in woman as well as their partner can be a good step in family planning to screen for genetically inherited diseases that either person may be carrying. While the mom or her partner may not have a family history of genetic disease, he or she can still be a carrier of a condition that can be passed on to the child. This testing covers an array of genetically inherited diseases throughout the body, including spinal muscular atrophy in the spinal cord and other spine disorders.
