Invasive techniques for prenatal diagnosis

If necessary and after a doctor’s recommendation, a full range of invasive techniques for prenatal diagnosis is performed at Nadezhda Hospital – amniocentesis, chorionic biopsy, cordocentesis. Invasive prenatal diagnosis is recommended in cases of serious suspicions of a problem with the foetus, which cannot be proved categorically by the methods of non-invasive prenatal examinations.
