Benefits of genetic screening for down syndrome...

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.

    I wouldn't terminate a pregnancy based on a problem with the baby but it is nice to know what to expect after birth so you can be better prepared.
