Who should get the Panorama test done? – by: Jana – Mama of Moomie

Many pregnant women have concerns about the health of their baby. If you have concerns, you should talk with your healthcare professional. He or she will advise you as to what tests you might want to have to help give you peace of mind.
Some women have a higher chance for chromosome abnormalities because of their age, family history, or other screening test results. The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists recommends these women be offered a non-invasive prenatal test like the Panorama test (Committee Opinion No. 545, Dec 2012). These women may choose to have the Panorama test to help them decide if they want a CVS or amniocentesis.
Most women who have the Panorama test will find out their baby is at low risk for the conditions tested. This means that the chance of the baby having one of these conditions is very low, which can be reassuring. When the test result shows a high risk, it is important to talk with your healthcare provider about your next steps.
