Under the leadership of Deborah Larkey, MD, and Cresta Jones, MD, FACOG, the WAPC Prenatal Testing Committee updated all of the 28 existing recommendations and added five new recommendations related to the care of pregnant women, including screening for:

  • Hypertensive Disorders
  • Substance Abuse Disorders
  • Fragile X Syndrome
  • Spinal Muscular Atrophy
  • Thrombophilia

The fifth edition of this popular reference is now available to purchase as an electronic download. If you prefer paper, you can order the printed version. Orders for printed copies will not be shipped until January 2015. The book includes five new recommendations.

Revising this publication was an extensive project that took several months to complete. WAPC would like to thank all members of the Prenatal Testing Committee who volunteered their time and expertise to make the 5th edition possible.
