Hospitals not only don't provide enough if any information about this, the fact that there can be a financial cost involved (for testing) deters many people who would otherwise consider it.
We did it with our last. (born 8 months ago)
We lost our first; she had leukemia and just before she was to begin pre-transplant radiation and chemo she developed a fungal infection and never made it to transplant.

Congratulations on your success :-)
