About the Book

Diagnosis to Delivery: A Pregnant Mother’s Guide to Down Syndrome by Nancy Iannone and Stephanie Meredith

This publication goes beyond just being a very useful resource for couples; it also has a very human side that comes through openly and compassionately. This book points out many important thoughts that I express to my patients. First and foremost, what others think about a particular situation is not as important as what each individual couple believes and needs to worry about. There are resources available to reach out to for support, education, and information … The more information that a couple has, the better prepared they are to make it comfortable and enjoyable for their family. — Dr. Harish Sehdev
