You can have no risk factors for it, as well as no "symptoms", but you could still have it. Wouldn't it be safest for the baby and yourself to take the test to make sure? Are you aware of the health risks?

I don't really get the resistance to the test other than a weird mistrust of doctors?
I don't think anyone said anything about not trusting their doctors. The test has a good rate of false positives, and there are more accurate and safer ways of getting the result.
