"Risk, Age and Pregnancy" provides an in-depth case study of the operation of a prenatal genetic screening and testing system. The authors integrate observational, qualitative interview and survey data, exploring the perspectives of pregnant women, hospital doctors and midwives, and the communication between women and the hospital doctors who advise them. The book offers insights relevant to those concerned with the rapidly growing field of genetic risk management.
