    It is my personal opinion that this procedure is dangerous and unnecessary,
    isn't the percentage of miscarriage extremely high , if someone could quote a figure for me that would be great.

      % of pregnancies that end in miscarriage ---> 30 %

      "The amniocentesis-related miscarriage rate by 24 weeks of pregnancy was 0.06 percent."
      "amniocentesis increased the rate of miscarriage by 0.5 or 1 percent"

      So not really that dangerous.

      It still increases the chances of a miscarriage.

      Seems a bit sketch ethically in my opinion.

      Walking increases the chance of a miscarriage (or in certain circumstances, bed rest does). Ethically sketchy?

      the percentage increase in miscarriage is quite large. 1% is still a large amount for a procedure that is unneccesary.

      If there is a chance that your baby can have genetic disorders maybe not getting pregnant would of been a good idea.

      Yeh its a shame there is no such thing as contraception in our society.

      hold on..i think something was wrong with the previous statement.

      You could also just NOT have sex

      again.... a bit late when your ALREADY pregnant. This process allows you to help deal with whatever happened, whether it was a mistake or not.

      amniocentesis is used when you're already pregnant.

      But amniocentesis is used to test for a genetic disorder. and would be used if a parent was concerned about their child.
      If you knew there was a chance for a genetic disorder you shouldn't have had sex in the first place.
