Kanse van 2de Down Sindroom baba?
Hi

Ek wil net graag uitvind wat is my kanse om nog 'n down sindroom babatjie te hê. My seuntjie is Down sindroom(Trisomie 21) maar die tweede kind. Moet ek gaan vir spesiale toetse voor ek weer wil swanger word? Ek is 24 jaar oud.

Baie Dankie

Beste Jade

Jy moet vir amniosintese gaan sodat chromosomale studies gedoen word as jy weer swanger word want daar is 'n kans dat jy weer 'n Down sindroom baba kan he, die dokter sal jou meer kan inlig.
