Prenatal and newborn genetic testing employs the use of diagnostic or screening techniques to detect chromosomal abnormalities in a new born baby or a fetus. These abnormalities include: Edward syndrome, Down syndrome, and Patau syndrome. With the effective use of such screening and testing procedures, it is possible to detect certain types of genetic abnormalities early on in the gestation period (as early as eight to ten weeks), besides determining the sex of the fetus.

There is a growing awareness among pregnant women to undergo such screening and testing procedures so as to ensure a healthy future for their offspring. The Northwestern Medical Faculty Foundation states that nearly 85% pregnant women are advised to undergo screening or testing for birth defects such as trisomy 18, open neural tube defects, and Down syndrome.

Additionally, there are a number of other tests that allow medical practitioners to determine defects such as trisomy 13 and other chromosome abnormalities.

The report classifies newborn and prenatal genetic tests into two major categories: screening tests and diagnostic tests. While the former helps detect the change of specific genetic abnormalities developing in a new born or fetus, the latter is used essentially for confirming the presence of such conditions in a new born or fetus.
