Frequently Asked Questions | Resources for Families | Fact Sheets

One of the first steps to assuring your new baby’s health is to get in contact with your healthcare provider. You can address any questions or concerns you have about newborn screening. The screening process focuses on certain metabolic and other types of disorders. Although it will not eliminate the possibility of all problems, it will give you important information about your baby’s health.
