Over the past years, there has been a mounting interest in the relationship between the ever more sophisticated techniques and technologies deployed in antenatal screening and the implications for parents. Despite this growth in interest and in the importance of people’s experience of becoming parents very little research explored the processes and procedures of antenatal screening. Alison Pilnick and Olga Zayts now have published an article in Symbolic Interaction that is concerned with the uncertainty that emerges in the interaction between participants in antenatal screening. By examining in detail the talk between participants in antenatal screening Pilnick and Zayts discuses the relevance of uncertainty as it transpires and is used as a resource by the participants. The paper now is out on Early View.
