Prenatal screening technologies, such as non-invasive prenatal screening, are fast becoming a routine part of pregnancy care. Prospective parents are often provided with minimal information about screening, including the commonly screened-for conditions such as Down syndrome. This site brings together information to better enable prospective parents to make informed choices about screening, diagnostic testing and continuing or terminating a pregnancy.
Have you received unexpected news following prenatal screening or simply need advice about your options?
Support through the Down Syndrome Queensland support service is also available for any health care professional, community service, carer or family members supporting someone who has received unexpected news about their pregnancy.
