I am 35 and expecting my first baby. I have been offered amniocentesis test, but am not sure whether to have it done?
Amniocentesis is a screening test and form it many inherited abnormalities can be detected. you must decide would you want a termination if an abnormality was detected? Also, are you prepared to take the slight, but real, risk of losing the baby that the investigation itself carries? Unless you answer 'yes' to both these questions then amniocentesis would not be advisable.
