Answer: Double marker test is very common
The double marker test is a specific type of blood test with the goal to check for any anomalies that might be present in the chromosomal development of the baby. Having any abnormalities in the chromosomes can lead to serious health conditions, disorders, and so on that can affect the baby’s growth within the foetus, or even later in life. By knowing if there are any and checking for the right chromosomes that could be the issue, one can know beforehand about the presence or possibilities of certain disorders like Down’s syndrome, Edward’s syndrome and so on.
