Líquido amniótico

El líquido amniótico rodea al feto en la matriz durante su crecimiento y lo protege contra lesiones y cambios de temperatura. También le da libertad de movimiento fetal y permite el desarrollo del músculo esquelético. Este líquido se puede extraer para realizar el procedimiento denominado amniocentesis, que sirve para detectar defectos cromosómicos u otras anomalías.
