Many abnormal test results do not mean a 100% certainty for a problem in your pregnancy or new baby. There are different genetic tests available for a pregnancy or new baby. Some genetic tests can confirm the cause of a problem that’s already happened, while others only tell you the chances that a problem has occurred. Both of these results might be called “abnormal” or “positive” test results, which can sometimes be confusing. In other types of genetic testing, you and/or your partner have the test (and not your baby). This can tell you about your risk as a couple to have a baby with a genetic disease. View More
