Pregnant after a Loss

Does anyone know...

Are babies' medical records accessible when they are adults? I heard that minor's records were sealed, but I'm not so sure. What if you wanted to test your baby for a genetic disorder but didn't want the results to haunt them for the rest of their life and prevent them from getting insurance, disability, joining the military, etc.

Or do you know what the process is on getting tested anonymously?

    if you had genetics tests done & it showed an anomaly, you & the child/adult would need to disclose that as part of his history. so any dr would need to report it when getting life insurance.
