Hello. My cousin is pregnant. She is 42 years old and this is her first pregnancy. It is little too late, but she is persistent. She told me she was afraid her baby could have Down syndrome. I have heard about this syndrome before, but I don’t know what disorders are included there. What can you tell me about this?

Hi. Children with Down syndrome are characteristic for their facial appearance. They are recognizable. There are some disorders that are more common among these kids. They have flattened facial features, their tongue is always out. Their head is also small. They have upward eyes, unusual for child’s ethnic group. Ears are also shaped weird. Mental retardation is also present, so as heart problems. Their fingers are short, hands as well. You can consult a doctor for details. Good luck!
