Fetal interventions - Amniocentesis

Amniocentesis is a procedure in which amniotic fluid is removed from the uterus for testing or treatment. Amniotic fluid is the fluid that surrounds and protects a baby during pregnancy. This fluid contains fetal cells and various proteins.

Amniocentesis is a test done during pregnancy to get information about the fetus by sampling the amniotic fluid, which contains cells and chemicals which are fetal in origin. The most common reason for amniocentesis is to determine for sure whether a fetus has Down syndrome. This test is usually done between 15 and 18 weeks of pregnancy, but it can be done at any time in gestation. Amniocentesis can also provide information about:
1. Genetic disorders other than Down syndrome, such as in the presence of fetal anomalies documented at ultrasound scan
2. Infection in the fetus
