welcome to HCM,
read your prob, amniocentesis is a invasive test also called amniotic fluid test.
this test is for rule out any genetic or chromosomal abnormalitis in fetous. it more coplications like fetous limb defect, miscarrige. if you have no family history of genetic or chromosomal abnormalities there is no need to be do it. there is one another safest option present called NT. NT has no complication n it is non invasive test. so dont do it.
