1c. What are some further sources of information about prenatal tests?

-----------------------------------------
From Kathy S Leggitt:

In my childbirth classes I like to handout Penny Simkin's
brochure called "Obstetric Tests and Technologies". This
is available individually, or in a group of brochures
called the "Better Baby Series."

They are really good brochures for an overview on many
topics, and the Obstetric Tests and Technologies one is
very well written. They can be ordered from the
International Childbirth Education Association,
P. O. Box 20048, Minneapolis, MN 55420-0048.
-----------------------------------------

_Prenatal Tests_ by Robin Blatt is a consumer's guide to prenatal tests.
Some books which address issues related to prenatal testing: _The
Tentative Pregnancy_, by Barbara Katz Rothman, _Women and Prenatal
Testing_, edited by Karen H. Rothenberg and Elizabeth J. Thomson, and
_Exploding the Gene Myth_, by Ruth Hubbard and Elijah Wald (Beacon Press,
1992).
