Prenatal testing for Down syndrome fact sheet
The Prenatal testing fact sheet contains easy-to-understand, factual and balanced information for people considering prenatal testing or if a test shows that a baby may have or does have Down syndrome.
Position statement on prenatal screening
A large part of our work involves advocating for families and for our community. Our federation works together to develop policy positions advocating on important issues to the federal government and national organisations. The position statement represents Down Syndrome Australia’s position on prenatal testing for Down syndrome.
You can find the full range of these and other Prenatal resources in our Resource Hub.
