  1. Deciding about the unknown: perceptions of risk of women who have prenatal diagnosis.

    Article - En anglais

    This paper examines the risk perceptions of women who undergo two prenatal diagnostic procedures, amniocentesis and CVS (chorionic villus sampling).

    Data were collected from a survey of clinic patients in suburban Washington, D.C., and in San Diego (N=120).

    The survey was supplemented by in-depth interviews with prenatal diagnosis users and genetic counselors.
