Hi, folks. My wife has just given birth to a wonderful baby. She should leave the hospital, but doctors recommend newborn screening tests. I wonder if these tests can really help in children health issues. I hope someone could tell me something more about this. Thanks in advance for all your help.

Hello, there. The aim of newborn screening is to discover potential disorders before they manifest. There's nothing wrong that your wife's doctor recommends it. He just want to be sure whether your baby is really healthy. I think excluding some disorders can help in children health issues. Most of the tests use few drops of blood. Hearing tests consists of putting tiny earphone in baby's ear and measuring his/her response to sound. You can consult about this your wife's doctor. Good luck! Bye!
