Hi, everybody! I am Melanie Raposo and welcome to Mommy's Minute. Some concerns surrounding maternal screening tests are false results.

Other reasons for abnormal results, include carrying twins, if the fetus is a few weeks older or younger than originally thought or if the test was performed wrong.
