This is performed with an amneocentsis, where they place a needle into you stomach and withdraw some amniotic fluid, it carries some risks of miscarriage

at 30 wks it could cause premature labour, the membranes can rupture, there is always  a risk with invasive testing, it also depends on how skilled the doctor is performing the amnio as well, if it did happen your baby would still have a pretty good chance of being ok, but is it necessary to do one, or can you wait until after bub is born
