Publishers Description: Recent advances in medical technology have made it possible to test babies before birth to detect abnormalities or complications. While providing parents with a new set of options, prenatal diagnosis has become one of the most controversial areas of medicine. This book cuts through the sensationalism to give a clear outline of the techniques available and to identify those most used. Several case histories of people who have used these procedures are included, as well as a question-and-answer section at the end of each chapter. Illuminating photographs of ultrasound images, and clear diagrams of different procedures are helpful in explaining the processes. By presenting the options and factors involved, this book encourages informed decision-making. It is essential reading for parents-to-be and counsellors.
