Question: What is down syndrome screening
Answer: Hello dear. Down syndrome occurs when a baby is born with an extra copy of chromosome 21 in their cells (Down syndrome is also called 'trisomy 21'). This occurs randomly at the time of conception. Diagnostic tests are usually offered to women whose babies are at increased risk, based on the result of the screening tests. Hope it helps.
