Summary
"Most parents-to-be will be offered an array of tests to check on the wellbeing of their unborn baby. This practical book provides clear and accessible information about the purpose, the timing, and the risks of each test, as well as details of how the test will actually be performed." "The crucial information on every prenatal test is covered, so that at each state of pregnancy, parents can rely on it to be informed about the difficult decisions that may have to be made, whether to have the tests, and finally to help explain the results." "This book also provides background reading for discussions with medical staff." "Prenatal tests: the facts is written by two experts in the field. Arranged by stage of pregnancy, and comprehensively illustrated with ultrasound images it gives parents-to-be all the information they need in order to make the right decisions for themselves and their baby."--BOOK JACKET
