Taking care of baby
Pregnancy. It’s amazing, but also pretty terrifying. A mama-to-be’s maternal instinct kicks in as fast as that double blue line shows up and then it’s all about nourishing and protecting the teeny miracle in your belly.
One of our biggest hopes? Knowing that everything is going to plan and the baby is healthy and developing just as he or she should. Well, thanks to modern technology and Natera’s incredible new ‘Panorama™’ test, it’s now easier than ever to monitor how bubba is doing.
Highly accurate and totally non-invasive, the Panorama™ prenatal test screens for Down syndrome and other genetic conditions via a blood test that can be performed as early as 9 weeks into pregnancy. It’s also 99.9% accurate if you’re keen to uncover the sex of your little bundle before the big day – yippee! And with a complimentary 15 minute pre- and post-test online genetic information session, all those niggly questions and concerns can be straightened out too.
And the best bit? The test is completely safe with no risk to mama or baby (unlike the more common invasive procedures) so offers peace of mind right from the very start AND detects certain conditions including triploidy that other methods cannot. Results are delivered within 7 calendar days after the blood sample is taken. Simple.
Founded by Dr. Matthew Rabinowitz, PhD, Natera’s mission is to detect genetic diseases, change the response to the detction of any genetic problems and – ultimately – to save children’s lives. It couldn’t get better than that.
The Panorama™ test is available at Scientific Clinical Laboratories in Dubai.
