Your baby’s first steps to a healthy life

If you're pregnant or your baby is less than 6 months old, find out if your baby is carrying life-threatening metabolic disorders that could affect his future.

What is Newborn Metabolic Screening?

It is a screening for every newborn for many harmful or potentially fatal metabolic disorders (also known as inborn errors of metabolism, or IEMs for short) that are not apparent at birth. An inborn error of metabolism (IEM) is a rare genetic disorder where the affected baby lacks certain enzymes that maintain normal bodily metabolic function, causing the build-up of toxic substances or deficiency of critical substances required for development.
Screening your newborn will facilitate early treatments and prevent long term detrimental effects to your baby's health.
