AFP Amniotic Fluid

AFP Amniotic Fluid

During pregnancy, this test looks for alpha-fetoprotein in amniotic fluid. It is produced by the infant and enters the amniotic fluid. It will tell you if your baby has a specific health issue. The sample can detect an open neural tube defect in your baby, and a neural tube defect is spina bifida.

Why done? 

Amniocentesis is used to diagnose newborn problems. These are:

Gene mutations cause genetic illnesses. 
• Extra, missing, or defective chromosomes cause chromosome abnormalities which cause mental and physical issues.
• The exam can also check your baby's lung growth.
• A neural tube abnormality affects a baby's brain and spine development.


Lie on your back.
• The doctor might numb your abdomen.
• The baby and uterus are both checked by ultrasound.
• Your doctor will use an ultrasound to obtain amniotic fluid.
• Your doctor will utilize ultrasound to check your baby's heartbeat shortly after that.

How does one prepare for the test? 

You might be instructed to keep a full bladder or empty it right before the treatment. A full bladder helps position the uterus for the test early in pregnancy. An empty bladder helps set the uterus for testing later in pregnancy.
