  • Women who know that they or their partners are carriers of a known genetic disease.
  • Women who had an early ultrasound report shows that the fetus has structural defects which are associated with chromosomal disorders.
  • Women who have had a child with Down Syndrome or other chromosomal disorders.
  • Women who know that they or their partners have an unusual chromosome arrangement.

IS CVS SAFE?

CVS is a safe, low risk procedure when done by experienced medical experts. The risk of miscarriage following the test is reported to be 1%.
