I am 39 and have a 4 year old daughter, no H and I had a amnio w/ her. I also have a 3 month old boy w/ a deep H on his face and we had no amnio w/ him. In my humble opinion, amnios get a bad rap, they are the best way to find out any info in utero. The statistics for amnio that are now quoted are from the 80's when video games where Pong and the Dr's would not be able to see the cord well and puncture the cord which gave it the bad rap, w/ advanced imaging of today this is almost impossible. Any questions read Advice from a Pregnant OBGYN.
