BC Newborn Screening Program

Uses a blood test to identify babies who may have a treatable disorder. With early detection the chances of serious health problems are prevented or reduced later in life. If not treated, these disorders can cause severe mental handicap, growth problems, health problems and sudden infant death. A blood sample is usually taken between 24 and 48 hours after birth. This will be done before the baby leaves the hospital or, if a home birth, by a midwife at home.more info
