Option GridTM decision aid:

Amniocentesis test: yes or no?

Use this decision aid to help you, your partner, and your healthcare professional decide whether or not to have amniocentesis testing. An amniocentesis test tells you whether your baby has a chromosome-related problem, such as Down syndrome. The amniocentesis test is optional. This decision aid is for women in their fifteenth week of pregnancy or later.
