The Science

We don't take shortcuts

We’ve never been one to take the easy route, because we know shortcuts mean missed steps, and that’s not how we roll. All of the tests included in our Essential package are backed by national guidelines and research. Our unwavering commitment to excellence helps provide you with the results you need to make critical decisions.

What does the research say?

All of the tests in our package are backed by national guidelines and/or research that has shown an association between preconception testing and pregnancy health. The CDC, AAFP, and ACOG recommend that any woman planning to become pregnant within 12 months have testing before conception. By identifying abnormalities that may cause complications for you or your future pregnancy, you can take a proactive approach to improving your health.

Evidence-based and up-to-date

It’s estimated that it takes 17 years for research to reach clinical practice.1 That means the average provider won’t start using today’s research for almost two more decades! Crazy, right? That’s why we continue to stay up to date by performing monthly reviews of new research. We monitor today’s science so you stay in the loop.

World's leading lab

We’ve partnered with Quest, the world’s leading lab, to provide you with quality tests and accurate results. We avoid “no name” labs so you can feel confident making decisions based on your results.

CLIA-certified

All of the labs we work with are licensed and certified under CLIA which means you can be sure that the results you’re getting are based on the very highest standards.

Top level accuracy

Each test is backed by a robust quality control process to help ensure that results will be accurate the first time.
