Prenatal Testing

Most children born in Australia are born healthy. But about 3 babies in every 100 are born with a condition they will need medical care.  Some of the more common conditions are:

  1. Congenital heart disease
  2. Disorders of kidneys and bladder
  3. Hip dislocation at birth
  4. Club foot (talipes)
  5. Down’s Syndrome and other chromosomal Disorder
  6. Spina bifida and neural tube defects
  7. Cleft lip and /or palate
  8. Developmental delay

Some of the conditions can be detected in pregnancy while others cannot.  Screening tests or Diagnostic Test are available for some of these disorders. They are not compulsory it is your choice whether or not to have these tests.

Before having any tests, you need to consider what you would do if a test came back positive or indicates increase risk.   What would you do if a test showed your unborn child had an abnormality?  Would you consider a termination of pregnancy?  Would you not consider one?  Would you just like to know, even if you don’t plan to do anything about it? Or would you rather not know

At Pardise Ultrasound we offer two different types of testing: The NIPT test and Amniocentresis.
