Your baby has a blood test about a week after they are born. This is called the heel-prick test. The test is to check for rare conditions and is offered to all babies. Some babies are born with a gene for unusual haemoglobin. This leaflet gives you information about being a 'carrier' (having a gene for unusual haemoglobin) and what this means for your baby and for you and your family.
