It is a blood test, which helps in detecting Down’s syndrome and other chromosomal abnormalities.

How do you find out the gender of your baby through blood test?

NIPT (noninvasive prenatal testing) is a blood test used to screen for Down syndrome and a few other chromosomal conditions. You can have NIPT at 10 weeks of pregnancy or later. (You can also find out your baby’s sex when you have this test.) Results are usually available in a week or two, sometimes a little sooner.

How is NIPT test done?

During pregnancy, some of the baby’s DNA passes into the mother’s bloodstream. The non-invasive prenatal test (NIPT) analyses the genetic information contained in this DNA to screen for a number of abnormalities. The NIPT involves a simple blood test and can be done from 10 weeks into the pregnancy.
