As a s/o from the post below. It irks me when the uninformed quote stats on this topic. Clearly if you're quoting a 1/200 miscarriage rate on an amnio you've never met with a peri to discuss it, let alone experienced an amnio yourself.
I met with my Peri at Duke University Hospital 2 weeks ago who informed me that the real/new stats (versus those of 20 years past) are:
1/1600 for amnio
1/1200 for cvs
I realize that these risks are still too high for some, but it's important to know/ disseminate the real data, not just outdated info from the googles. Not trying to flame, just trying to squash the myths since this is an important topic and misinformation is scary.
