In brief: ABSOLUTELY!

Invasive prenatal diagnosis is a deeply personal choice after information gathering and analysis.
It is never mandated and is always elective/optional. Nowadays non-invasive prenatal diagnosis can be obtained by sampling the maternal blood and isolating cell-free fetal dna in it - ask your doctor and genetic counselor about maternit21 and harmony tests.
