Newborn Screening

Every child deserves the best care to lead a quality life. To enable this for their child, parents-to-be need to understand newborn screening. It is a set of tests done on day two or three of life for the child. It is the birthright of every newborn to be screened for a preset list of disorders. These disorders if detected early can be treated or managed very effectively that allows the child to grow up normally. Otherwise, these children grow up to have severely damaged physical and mental development.
