How Is Amniotic Fluid Collected?

More in this article:

If you have decided to have an amniocentesis, collecting amniotic fluid for banking during your procedure is easy. Banking your fluid will not change the prenatal testing procedure in any way and will not have any impact on the tests results.


Many health care professionals typically withdraw more fluid than necessary for the prenatal test. So, rather than discarding already withdrawn leftover amniotic fluid, mothers now have the option to preserve a small portion, often just about a teaspoonful, of the fluid for decades.
