Questions For All Expectant Mothers

prenatalstudent - March 30

Hello! I`m a student studying about invasive prenatal diagnostic procedures, and I would like to get some opinions/insights from mothers who are considering or have already experienced those invasive procedures (amniocentesis and/or chronic villus sampling). I will really appreciate if you can quickly reply to the questions below (even replying to some will help). 1. Were you over 35 years old when pregnant and considering an amniocentesis or a CVS? 2. Has your doctor recommended that you do an amniocentesis or a CVS? If so, which one? 3. Did you accept the doctor’s recommendation to undergo testing? If so, which procedure was/will be performed? 4. Would the choice to undergo testing be easier if instead you could get the same information from a test that used a small blood sample from you and provided results within one hour? 5. Would you be willing to pay (out-of-pocket) for a rapid, blood-based diagnostic test that would pose no risk to your baby? If so, how much would you be willing to pay? 6. (Relate to #5). Will you be willing to wait a bit longer (2 weeks) or pay more and get results within 2 hours? Thank you!
