In brief: Depends
It depends on what disease you are talking about and your risk factors - talk with your doctor.

In brief: ? What issue ?
There are hundreds of enzyme and chromosomal diseases that can be diagnosed prenatally, if you know what you are looking for.There is no single test that could guarantee a normal kid.
If concerned, first contact a clinical geneticist, often affiliated with teaching hospitals. Have a family profile (mom and dad) reviewed to focus your direction of study.Learn the limits of such studies.
