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.

Dr. Won attentively managed my second pregnancy. I previously had a second trimester loss attributed to cervical incompetence and then carried another pregnancy to term with the use of cervical cerclage and extended bed rest. Due to my high risk obstetric history, I was unsure how difficult or feasible another pregnancy would be. My husband and I were put at ease during what may have otherwise been a stressful time. Dr. Won’s personalized care made me feel like one-in-a-million rather than one of many. The staff at Diablo Valley Perinatal Associates was fabulous; friendly and professional. From check-in to follow-up, our experience was exceptional. I would highly recommend Diablo Valley Perinatal Associates to colleagues, friends and family members.
