Antenatal testing is medical testing that is conducted to evaluate the health of the fetus before or during pregnancy. Testing and care treatments in Inova centers are provided by subspecialist trained maternal-fetal medicine physicians also known as perinatologists, high-risk perinatal nurses, specialty sonographers and genetic counselors.

Inova offers three hospitals locations to provide the highest level of obstetric testing and treatment to routine and high-risk patients by referral from their obstetrician. Please visit the hospital antenatal testing center page for more details and appointment information.
