The average age of women giving birth in United States has increased over the years. It’s no longer unusual for women to have a first child at age 35 or even 40. This trend has been attributed to numerous factors such as recession and associated affordability issues, and women being more focused on their careers than before. However, increased age of the mother also increases the risk of her child developing chromosomal abnormalities. This risk has thus paved the way for NIPT tests which have emerged as the next big thing in the field of prenatal diagnostics.
