Do remember to ask your doctor on all the tests and their results. One has the right to know the reasons for getting a test done, the procedure involved, the cost, the preparation needed and the importance of the results for a healthy prenancy. Read about the tests in literature and also talk to it about people who have had deliveries or expecting mothers. Don’t just go for a test because the doctor does it for all his/ her patients. Ask for the validity and the reasons behind everything, as some tests can be painful and sometimes dangerous. Be well informed and prepared for all kinds of consequences and results.
