Specialist Pregnancy Consultations

It would be great if every pregnancy was to be thought of and planned in advance. This is particularly true for those groups of mothers who have coexisting medical problems; like diabetes, cardiac or renal problems. Mothers who experienced significant complications in a previous pregnancy like preterm birth, growth retardation, or fetal anomalies are also in great need for counseling.

The aim of the consultation would be to review the medical and obstetric history, and discuss the implications of a pregnancy to the mother’s and future baby’s health. The next step is to try and determine the best time for the couple to go forward with a pregnancy and finally to plan the Obstetric care in way that will maximize the chances for a successful outcome and minimize those of pregnancy complications.

Amniocentesis

What is an amniocentesis?

Amniocentesis is a diagnostic procedure performed during pregnancy. It helps to obtain a small sample of amniotic fluid (the fluid around the baby) which in turn is used for the diagnosis of certain genetic conditions or infections.

Why should I have an amniocentesis?

An amniocentesis is not a routine test. Your doctor may offer you an amniocentesis if there are concerns about specific genetic conditions. The following are typical examples

The one most widely known genetic problem is Down’s syndrome.

A number of screening tests are available to help parents and doctors determine the risk of a pregnancy being affected before deciding for an amniocentesis.

In some cases, the test is done to exclude known genetic problems that run in the family.
Routine ultrasound scans on occasions pick up certain features of the baby associated with genetic conditions.

Some parents want to be certain that their baby is not affected by a certain disorder.

An amniocentesis may also be offered to check whether an infection has passed from mother to the baby.

How is an amniocentesis done?

The procedure is usually done after week 15 of your pregnancy. The doctor will fully explain the procedure to you and get to sign an informed consent.

He will check your blood group, your HIV and HepB status. If you are Rh Negative, you will need an injection of Anti-D after the procedure. If you are HIV or Hep-B positive having the procedure, may increase the risk of passing the infection to the baby.

Usually the doctor will perform prior to the amniocentesis an ultrasound scan to examine the baby and identify the best window for the procedure.

It takes a few minutes to prepare the procedure tray. Then he will clean your tummy with an antiseptic solution. A small amount of local anesthetic will be used to numb the skin where the needle is to be inserted. A thin needle is used for the local anesthetic you might find this a bit uncomfortable.

Following the local anesthetic and under direct ultrasound guidance, the doctor will pass a fine needle through your tummy into your womb and the fluid around the baby. The doctor’s assistant using a syringe will obtain about 15mls of this fluid. The baby will not miss this fluid and will replace it in a few hours. As a very fine needle is used it takes a few seconds to take the sample. At the end of the procedure the doctor will remove the needle.

Most women find the whole procedure uncomfortable rather than painful. On occasions you might experience mild period like pains. This not uncommon and simple paracetamol is very helpful.

In some occasions not enough fluid is obtained with the first attempt. This is usually due to the position of the baby. In this case the doctor may have to reinsert the sampling needle.
