    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going?

    New Test for High Risk Pregnancy

    jeffd67 posted:
    There is finally an alternative test to the "risky" amniocentesis.

    It's called Maternit21.

    It is a completely safe way of testing for Down Syndrome, because it is a genetic test. It's non-invasive. It's more accurate.

    Ask your doctor about this new test which just became available this month.

    For more information about the test, Google search on "Maternit21".

    So far, it's available in 20 major cities.
