OBGYN Dr. Chris Stroud talks about the pros and cons of prenatal testing, when they are reliable and when they are misleading, how the tests can help parents get access to innovative and life-changing treatments, and the most important things for parents to know before they choose which tests to receive.
Top 3 Takeaways:
- When it comes to prenatal testing, sometimes less is more. Understand what question the test is asking and what you’d do with the answer.
- Testing isn’t a sin, and neither is not testing. Don’t make assumptions for yourself or others.
- Know what you’re going to do with the information you’re testing for – if the answer won’t change your actions, no need for the test.
