Down syndrome: overview and diagnosis (PDF 79kb)

In this short podcast, parents of children with Down syndrome talk about getting the diagnosis during pregnancy. They say they talked with their families about how this child would fit into their lives, and about deciding to go on with the pregnancy. Also, child health specialists explain what Down syndrome is and how they test for it.

This podcast is also available as a video.
