Early Check - Let's get started

Welcome to Early Check! Let's get started.

What do babies have to do?


Babies have a heel prick in the hospital for regular North Carolina newborn screening. We don't need any more blood. Early Check simply does extra screening tests on the same drops of blood.

What do parents have to do?

Sign up your baby. That's all!

Parents go through this site to learn more. Then the mother can decide to sign up her baby. Even though the mother has to give permission, we ask that both parents decide when possible.

If you have a family where the birth mother does not or will not have custody of the baby, contact us so we can tell you how to sign up.
