Down Syndrome, Genetic Counselling and Prenatal Screening

Of the many genetic conditions known to affect humans, Down Syndrome is perhaps the most recognisable.

He joins us to explain the scope of the study, the importance of genetic counselling, and whether it’s worth it to undergo prenatal genetic screening.
