1   Link   The California Prenatal Screeing Program
The activities of the Prenatal Screening Branch (PNS) are focused on detecting birth defects during pregnancy. PNS is working to assure Prenatal screening services and follow-up services where indicated are available to all pregnant women in California. The PNS administers the Prenatal Screening Program, in the past known as the "Expanded AFP Program". Prenatal screening currently offers three types of screening tests to pregnant women in order to identify individuals who are at increased risk for carrying a fetus with a specific birth defect.

After going through IVF we were delighted to find out that we were pregnant with twin girls. Unfortunately, my cervix started to open too early and I had to go on bed rest at 19 weeks. Dr Rosa Won was so wonderful in diagnosing the problem and then managing my case. If she had not found the cervical insufficiency we could have lost the twins. It was a scary time but Dr. Won’s compassion, kindness and medical expertise helped put us at ease. We cannot thank her enough for the great care she gave to us.
