Answer by Mom to bella summer
Its just because the older a women gets, the older her eggs get, and not as good a quality. It doesn’t mean that just cuz a women is older that she will for sure have a down syndrome kid. I think the statistics are like one in a hundred or something like that, for women over the age of 35. I know someone who is having a baby right now, and she is in her early 40′s.

What are the possibilities of having a down syndrome baby?

I am 19 years old and six months pregnant. I am starting to worry about the possibility of having a down syndrome baby. I will still love my baby to death I just want to know possibilities of having one. Please serious answers only. Thank you.
Thank you everybody for answering that question for me. I know it’s most common in elderly women. It doesn’t run in my family and now that I think about it the physician did tell me everything went fine when they analyzed the baby. No need to worry now. I am happy thanks everyone.

IS GIVING UP AN INFANT WITH DOWN SYNDROME FOR ADOPTION A VIABLE OPTION? http://birthpolicy.org/267/is-giving-up-an-infant-with-down-syndrome-for-adoption-a-viable-option/ http://birthpolicy.org/267/is-giving-up-an-infant-with-down-syndrome-for-adoption-a-viable-option/#comments Fri, 29 Oct 2010 07:53:58 +0000 admin http://birthpolicy.org/267/is-giving-up-an-infant-with-down-syndrome-for-adoption-a-viable-option/ Question by oh so blue:
Is giving up an infant with Down Syndrome for adoption a viable option?

Would it be possible in the US to find adoptive parents willing to take a child with Down Syndrome? I am pregnant and have not had any indication that my child might have it, but I have been thinking that if I were to find out that my child has Downs, I do not think I have the personality or resources to raise it. However I am very against abortion in nearly all cases, especially for myself, and do not think I could ever abort a fetus even if it does have Downs.

What are the odds to having a down syndrome baby with 2 ultrasound abnormalities?

I went in for my ultrasound at 19 wks and found out the baby has echoing in the heart ventricles and a cyst at base of brain. Individually, they would not be concerned, but because 2 abnormalities are present I need to go in for a level 2 ultrasound. What are my odds for having a down syndrome baby at 30 with these abnormalities being present?

Unborn baby down syndrome would you abort?

I am just curious…If you found out that your baby had down syndrome before he or she was born would you abort them? Or would you let them live?
My unborn son doesn’t have down syndrome…It was just a general question.
