Amniocentesis is a prenatal test that allows a healthcare practitioner to gather information about your baby's health from a sample of your amniotic fluid (the fluid that surrounds your baby in the uterus). The procedure involves inserting a long, thin, hollow needle through your amniotic wall and into the sac of fluid around your baby and withdrawing a small amount of fluid to be tested. This test is usually performed when a woman is between fifteen and twenty weeks pregnant.
