Maternal blood from the birth mother must be collected on the day of or within 7 days before or after the birth of your baby. If you are not able to arrange this with your health care providers, you can make an appointment with Progenics for a home visit ($50.00) or drop by our office to have it collected for free. If you will be delivering outside the GTA, Progenics will advise which clinic/laboratory to go to for the maternal blood collection.
