Thank you to PreTRM Test for sponsoring today’s post. As always, all thoughts and opinions are 100% my own.
I have been so lucky and blessed to have experienced two full term pregnancies. Abigail came promptly on her due date and Miss Mabel was born at 38 weeks + 2 days. I was shocked when Mabel came almost two weeks before her due date, because I was mentally prepared to go to her due date and beyond! I remember being so worried that she might not be ready and not be okay since it was early. Thankfully, it wasn’t an issue for her at all- it was the perfect time for her to be born! But, I can only imagine the fear that comes from premature labor and delivery.
Enter PreTRM test. The first and only prenatal blood test that is clinically validated to be an excellent predictor of preterm birth in all asymptomatic women who are pregnant with one baby, early in her pregnancy.
Predicting early provides doctors with the information they need to proactively monitor your pregnancy more closely if the result is high-risk. This information also gives you the opportunity to prepare for an early delivery and plan accordingly. Alternatively, receiving a low risk result can provide you with the reassurance and peace of mind that you aren’t at a higher risk for delivering early.
The PreTRM test was clinically validated by the PAPR study (Proteomic Assessment of Preterm Risk) and published in a top-tier peer-reviewed journal (American Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology) in May 2016. This study, the largest of its kind, was a multi-center, prospective study designed to develop and validate the PreTRM test. The study collected blood samples from 5,501 pregnant women across 11 clinical sites and was representative of asymptomatic singleton pregnancies (carrying only one child) in the U.S.
