write the advantages and disadvantages of amniocentesis. Why is it banned.

Dear Student,

Amniocentesis is a medical procedure by which the health and development of a fetus can be predicted using a sample of amniotic fluid during the prenatal period. In this process, the small amount of amniotic fluid containing fetal tissue and its DNA from the pregnant women is taken out using a needle which is examined for genetic abnormalities.

This test is very useful in the timely diagnosis of chromosomal abnormalities and developmental disorders of the fetus.

The amniocentesis test can also be used to determine the sex of the fetus.
