Cystic Fibrosis Carrier Screening

Cystic Fibrosis carrier testing is offered to all couples to test for their risk for giving birth to a child who will have CF

Cystic fibrosis carrier testing is a laboratory test done on a sample of blood or saliva. If testing shows that couple is at high risk, additional testing can be done on the developing baby to see whether or not it will have CF. 

Why it’s important: Cystic Fibrosis cannot be treated before birth. The purpose of having this information about your developing baby is so you can prepare yourself to care for a child with special health needs or so you can terminate the pregnancy. If you would not choose to terminate the pregnancy, this test can be waived.
