a doctor would ask.
Down Syndrome is a genetic condition that occurs in 1 in 1,000 babies and causes cognitive and developmental delays. Despite prenatal testing, most parents only become aware their child has the condition after birth. It is important therefore that doctors deliver the diagnosis in an appropriate and timely matter in order to ensure the parents cope better. The news should be delivered to both parents at the same time with all relevant information readily available.
