With this book, expectant parents will find a clear timeline and explanation of all the tests they can expect to receive at each stage of pregnancy, as well as how and why they are performed, and the risks involved. This book clarifies the pros and cons of each type of test, enabling parents to choose the testing options with which they are most comfortable. It does this in a positive, factual way so as not to exacerbate fears or implant worries in parents' minds of all the worst-case scenarios. Prenatal Tests and Ultrasound: The Facts is an invaluable source of information for expectant parents and their friends and families, and will also be of interest to professionals in general practice, obstetrics and gynaecology, and midwifery.
