Prenatal screening is offered to all pregnant women. Prenatal screening may include ultrasound and blood testing in order to determine if the pregnancy is at a higher risk for a particular birth defect. A variety of tests can be used to detect birth defects, including Down syndrome (trisomy 21) and trisomy 18. Down syndrome and trisomy 18 are chromosome abnormalities that cause birth defects and mental retardation. In any pregnancy there is a small chance that the baby has one of these abnormalities. If a screening test is positive, then the patient may elect to pursue diagnostic testing.
