How much fluid do they take for amniocentesis?

7 doctors weighed in across 2 answers

About 30 cc: About 30 cc of the approximately 300 cc of amniotic fluid present at the usual time of amniocentesis for prenatal diagnosis. The amount removed causes no harm and is rapidly restored from the maternal circulation.
