Abstract:

This four-page illustrated handout helps pregnant women prepare for an amniocentesis, which is a test of the amniotic fluid that surrounds the fetus to look for problems in the developing baby. It explains what will happen during the test, and recommends what the patient should do after it is over. The document outlines risks associated with the text, and clarifies those symptoms for which a doctor should be called.
