Failure In Prenatal Genetic Testing And Failure To Screen For Birth Defects

Throughout a pregnancy, tests and screenings should be conducted to monitor the development of your baby. Doctors and medical specialists who work in the prenatal field are trained to identify warning signs of birth defects and risk factors, and they know when to pursue certain treatments to prevent/treat potential diseases. Failure to order appropriate testing and treatments for potential diseases can significantly limit the options for correcting the issue, or diminish the chances of viability outside the womb.
