Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

What are the chances of miscarriage due to amnio or cvs?

Our doctor told us the risk was less than 1%. It's still a risk though.
They have two numbers for the risk of an amnio.  It is either 1 in 200 women have a miscarriage or 1 in 400 will. Risk of miscarraige for CVS is 3 to 5%.  If I was you I wouldn't even bother with these two tests.  It is too risky even with low numbers.
