My husband and I felt that it was best to be prepared rather than not know until she was born, that way we could be better equipped to take care of her. We chose to do the nuchal translucency scan and thankfully, we got the best possible result. However, had she been at a high risk for down syndrome, we would have done the amniocentesis test for a more accurate result.


For me the benefits where that if my child had it I would be prepared and be able to research and know how to handle things when the baby came. I would never abort my baby so that wouldn't be a reason for me to do testing like this .
