How you prepare

By Mayo Clinic Staff

If you're interested in noninvasive prenatal testing, talk to your health care provider about its availability. Also, consider checking to see if your health insurance covers the cost of noninvasive prenatal testing.

Before you undergo noninvasive prenatal testing, your health care provider or a genetic counselor will explain the possible results and what they might mean for you and your baby. Be sure to discuss any questions or concerns you have about the testing process.
