Medical technology is progressing at an incredibly rapid rate. Often times our ability to diagnose antenatal conditions has far outpaced our ability to treat them. As a physician I have always downplayed this in the "interest of science", yet the events of my wife's current pregnancy have given me thought to change. A quagmire of amniocentesises, karyotypes, and ultrasounds have left me with an indelible experience of uncertainty, anxiety and fear that has forever changed the way I practice my craft. I am left now with the impression that we have pryed into my developing son' life in a way the Creator never meant us to, that we have learned things we shouldn't know - and I can only pray that all comes out well in the end.
