Zika virus can cause abnormalities in a developing baby. The virus is spread by infected mosquitoes. If you are pregnant or considering pregnancy, be sure to ask your health care provider if you need to be screened.
A Zika virus screening should be completed by your health care provider at each prenatal check-up. If you or your partner live in or have traveled to areas at risk for Zika transmission, please notify your provider. He or she can perform the screening and appropriate test if needed.
You can find out about any identified areas of Zika virus transmission by visiting the CDC's website. If you have any questions, please contact your provider.
