Aout 6,000 babies are affected by down syndrome in the U.S. each year, amounting to around one in every 700 babies born.

The American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) and the International Society of Prenatal Diagnosis (ISPD), along with other professional societies, have stated that NIPT is an available screening option for all pregnant women.
