The PreTRM® Test for Moms

A premature birth, also called a preterm birth, occurs when your baby is delivered 3 or more weeks early – at less than 37 weeks of gestation. Until recently, doctors had limited ways to predict which pregnancies may be at risk of delivering early. Today, the PreTRM Test can provide important information to help predict that risk.

What Is Preterm Birth?

A preterm birth is a delivery that occurs any time before the start of the 37th week of pregnancy, or three or more weeks before the baby’s due date. While not all babies born early face complications, those who are born earlier generally have more severe complications than those born closer to term. While scientists are not certain of all the causes of preterm birth, they are beginning to understand the risk factors that may contribute to a woman’s risk of delivering early.

What Is the PreTRM® Test?

The PreTRM Test is an innovative blood test that your doctor can order during weeks 19 or 20 of your pregnancy. The test measures proteins in the blood that can indicate if you are at higher risk of delivering early. The report sent to your doctor will provide information on your individual risk for premature delivery, so you can work together to adjust your treatment plans accordingly.
