Having children is a life-changing experience and understanding the health of your children and/or unborn child is important for the future life of your family.
Our genetics testing lab is located at the Pennington Biomedical Research Center on the campus of Louisiana State University in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Your testing kit, which includes free, pre-paid shipping, will be shipped to our lab for processing upon performing the mouth swab test. This process can take as little as 2 weeks to run your sample and have your results distributed to yourself and your provider by mail. Once you have your results, you and your doctor can determine whether extra steps of preparation are necessary for birthing and raising a child. In addition, genetic counseling is available as an extra resource to you if help is needed for interpretation of your results.
