Question: Why Amniocentesis done? Is it safe?
Answer: Hi dear, Amniocentesis is a prenatal test. During amniocentesis, an ultrasound transducer is used to show a baby's position in the uterus on a monitor. A sample of amniotic fluid, which contains fetal cells and chemicals produced by the baby, is then withdrawn for testing.
Amniocentesis detects chromosome abnormalities, neural tube defects, and genetic disorders. Down syndrome or Trisomy 21 is the most common chromosome abnormality. Genetic disorders include disorders such as cyetic fibrosis. The most common neural tube defect is spina bifida.
