Montana's Newborn Screening

The goal of the Newborn Screening Program is to assure every baby born in Montana will receive three essential newborn screenings. Most babies are born healthy. Montana tests all babies because a few babies look healthy but have rare health conditions. It is very important that these conditions are detected right away.
