What are prior participants in the Sarnoff Center’s carrier screening program saying?
“The screening made me feel confident getting pregnant.”
“I knew my husband was a carrier for Tay Sachs, because he is a twin and his brother tested positive for it. So we definitely needed to do testing before having children to see if I was also a carrier. Luckily, I was negative on everything and we were in the clear. It was so so helpful to have that information before we started our family.”
“We really appreciated knowing that we could move forward with starting our family with as much confidence as possible.”
