In order to offer the best care for you and your baby, we provide the following services:
California Prenatal Screening Program
The California Prenatal Screening Program test is a two-step blood test that can tell the provider whether you are at increased risk for having a baby with certain birth defects. Your first blood test is done between 10 weeks, 0 days and 13 weeks, 6 days of pregnancy. Between 15 and 20 weeks of pregnancy, the second blood test will be done. The final result will be based on combining the two tests. It is your choice to have the test or not, but we will provide additional information prior to testing and answer any questions you might have.
HIV is the virus that causes AIDS (Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome) and is transmitted through sexual intercourse, sharing needles, and from a pregnant woman to her fetus during pregnancy and delivery. In California, the HIV test is recommended for all pregnant women, drug treatment during pregnancy can prevent the baby from getting HIV infection. It is always a safe precaution to get tested while pregnant, however, it is your choice to have the test or not. We will provide additional information prior to testing and answer any questions you might have.
