Chronic amniotic fluid leakage is a rare complication of genetic amniocentesis. Pregnancy outcomes in two such patients are presented and six previous cases reviewed. Although chorioamnionitis has not been reported, potentially serious complications may occur including an increased risk for pre‐term delivery and fetal skeletal deformity. While conservative management of post‐amniocentesis amniotic fluid leakage is advocated, patients should be advised of these risks.
