I have been a parent for twenty long years now to four kids and I could not really rate myself, not even my husband, as a successful parent. No one is perfect, so they say, and I agree to that, a hundred percent. Though I do know that being a good parent can help kids in their own walks of life. Becoming a good parent is not easy, it requires more time, effort, money and love. Even if you have given all these, you can not still be in control all the time. However, when you become to be proactive, it really helps big time!
Of the many parenting-related buzzwords we’ve heard over the years, the concept of being proactive has to be one of the most beneficial to moms and dads. All thanks to information overdrive, access to facts about good parenting, and know-hows on rearing kids and building a family are prolific. As parents, our decision are based mainly on circumstances we needed to deal with when such a time or issue arise, and most of the time, we are left weary not knowing what to do. So it’s good that you know things already even before it happens, or being upkeep with what’s happening in the family and prepared in circumstances that you are not even expecting.
For example, during pregnancy, you tend to give in to your cravings, like for sweets. Not knowing the detrimental effects of in taking too much sugar you might end up having gestational diabetes, which is harmful to your baby. Whereas, you have decided to take further steps in living a healthy pregnancy with proper diet and exercise. Knowing the long-term benefits of it.
Proactive parenting calls for long-term thinking. It is a commitment to get ready today for tomorrow’s issues and concerns in order to manage them in the best possible way. Proactive parenting encourages moms and dads to set a vision for what they’d like their family to be, and it should start the moment they find out that they are expecting. Nothing speaks more of proactive parenting than prenatal screening.
Hi-Precision Diagnostic’s Panorama™ Prenatal Screen is a non-invasive DNA screening test, which gives essential genetic information about your baby as early as nine weeks into your pregnancy. By knowing the state of your child’s health and
gender as early as possible, you can better prepare for your child’s future.
Whether you’re a first-time mom of 24 or a mom of four expecting another baby, the Panorama Prenatal Screen is for you. By providing a sample of your blood, you will not only know your baby’s gender, you will also find out his likelihood of having a chromosomal condition. Babies born to mothers over 35 years old have a higher chance of having certain chromosomal abnormalities such as Down Syndrome and Angelman Syndrome. However, it is good to note that certain biological conditions affect women of all ages. A screen test can help determine your baby’s risk of being affected with a specific chromosome condition regardless of age, family issues, or medical history.
Panorama is a non-invasive prenatal test (NIPT), which may be done in a single in office visit. As you will not be exposed to any extraneous elements, it is absolutely safe for you and your baby.
Some of your baby’s DNA actually crosses into your bloodstream during pregnancy. Panorama Prenatal Screen is the only screen test which can distinguish between fetal and maternal DNA, so that Hi-Precision Diagnostics’ laboratory specialists can analyze your baby’s DNA using your blood. Panorama screens for a broad panel of chromosome conditions, including Chromosomal Abnormalities, Sex Chromosome Abnormalities, and Microdeletions. More importantly, Panaroma is amazingly accurate, with a 100 percent batting average on fetal sex determination and the lowest reported false negative rate for chromosomal conditions. With Panorama Prenatal Screen, you will be given informative reports which will allow you to decide on your next course of action for the future health and well-being of your baby. Certainly, this is proactive parenting in the best sense!
