Help us make the BNP test mandatory in pregnancy blood test screenings.

By making the BNP test part of the pregnancy blood test screenings we can hopefully catch a pregnancy-related heart failure condition called Peripartum Cardiomyopathy early and help decrease the maternal mortality/morbidity rate.

This is a simple low-cost test that can save moms which in turn save families. It is no different than taking the typical diabetes blood test that is mandatory in pregnancy screenings. 

"Brain natriuretic peptide (BNP) test is a blood test that measures levels of a protein called BPN that is made by your heart and blood vessels. BNP levels are higher than normal when you have heart failure."
