Emory University is recruiting participants for a study about Non-Invasive Prenatal Testing (NIPT). If you are 18 years of age or older, have had recent NIPT or at any time in the past that showed increased risk for X & Y chromosome variations, you are eligible to participate.

The purpose of this study is to gather information about people who have had NIPT experience showing increased risk for X & Y chromosome variations, if they had genetic counseling support and their understanding about NIPT. The results from this study will help to develop a future program to help prospective parents understand more about NIPT and more about X & Y chromosome variations.
