Question: My wife is 17 weeks pregnant and today i have got her blood test report in which it is written neural tube and abdominal wall defect..please suggest what does it mean..doctor says further test named NIPT and aminocentesis
Answer: Get an anomaly scan from a good center done 18 to 20 weeks. NIPT though expensive offers complete chromosomal analysis of the baby. It is non invasive and done using mothers blood sample, it should be done first. Amniocentesis is however invasive and has minimum chances of miscarriage. See a fetal medicine specialist if possible
Hope this information is useful to you.
