Many of our expectant parents agreed to diagnostic testing in order to “prepare” for having a child with Down syndrome. Yet post-diagnosis they may not be sure exactly what they should be doing to prepare. For those of you who had a prenatal diagnosis, share what steps you took. For those of you who had higher chances but skipped the amnio, were there things that you did to prepare “just in case”? For all of you, are there things you wish you had done? Are there things you wish you had not done?
