The Global Down Syndrome Foundation and the National Down Syndrome Congress have jointly created the Down Syndrome Prenatal Testing Pamphlet, which will provide factual and up-to-date information about Down syndrome to pregnant women through various professionals, including doctors, genetic counselors and prenatal testing companies. The pamphlet will be available free of charge in doctor’s offices, at advocacy organizations, and for digital download online at www.downsyndrometest.org.
The pamphlet underscores the Global Down Syndrome Foundation’s dedication to ensuring pregnant women get accurate information about Down syndrome at the point of diagnosis. Such accurate information is called for in the 2008 Prenatally and Postnatally Diagnosed Condition Awareness Act, sponsored by Sens. Ted Kennedy (D-Mass.) and Sam Brownback (R-Kan.).
