Hello,There are only tests available to detect genetic problems, but no testes available to avoid genetic problems. When your wife become pregnant she needs to undergo ultrasound scan between 16-20weeks of pregnancy to see the baby has any anomoly, depending on that your doctor may advice blood tests on fetus or may ask to discontinue the pregnancy or if no abnormalities then to continue the pregnancy
