Benefits of Breastfeeding Breastfeeding Information If Your Baby is Hospitalised In Conclusion ... Down Syndrome Web Ring About one baby in every 850 is born with Down Syndrome. These babies have 47 chromosomes in each body cell, instead of the usual 46, but the exact reason why this occurs is not yet known. Fortunately, much progress has been made in recent years and continues to be made in the care and education of children with Down Syndrome. Breastfeeding can be an important step in the early care of these babies. "Breastfeeding helped with my bonding to James initially when my world was turned upside down by his arrival." The extent to which children are affected by Down Syndrome varies widely. These children achieve the milestones of child development, but more slowly than the average. You may be experiencing mixed emotions - this is very natural as you wonder what lies ahead for you and your baby. A branch of the Down Syndrome Association or your doctor will be able to provide you with information on access to Early Intervention Programmes in your state and will be able to put you in touch with other parents of children with Down Syndrome. Many people find this contact very supportive. "The best solution is to talk to other mums who have actually experienced your situation."

Health Care for Adults With Down Syndrome
Down syndrome occurs in about one in 1,000 live births and affects about 250,000 families in the United States. The syndrome is a congenital condition caused by an extra chromosome. It is characterized by cognitive delays (or mental retardation) and certain facial features. Adults who have Down syndrome can present diagnostic and treatment challenges. Patients with Down syndrome are more prone to certain health conditions, but may have difficulty expressing their symptoms and following treatment directions. Furthermore, symptoms may be incorrectly attributed to the condition of Down Syndrome. An overall, holistic approach forms the basis of good health care for adults with Down syndrome. Adults with Down syndrome have the same basic health care needs as typically developed people and should receive the same age-appropriate preventive care as unaffected persons. Immunization schedules are the same and screening for high blood pressure, heart disease, cancer and dental disease is no different. However, people with Down syndrome are likely to have a number of conditions, such as diabetes, thyroid disease, depression, hearing loss, obsessive-compulsive disorder, sleep apnea, compression of the spine in the neck area, and Alzheimer's disease.

What is Down Syndrome?
Down syndrome is a disorder that includes a combination of birth defects; among them, some degree of mental retardation, characteristic facial features and, often, heart defects, increased infections, problems with vision and hearing, and other health problems. The severity of all of these problems varies greatly among affected individuals. Down syndrome is one of the most common genetic birth defects, affecting approximately one in 800 to 1,000 babies. It generally is caused by an extra chromosome, the structures in cells that contain the genetic information (genes).
According to the National Down Syndrome Society, there are approximately 350,000 individuals with Down syndrome in this country. Life expectancy among adults with Down syndrome is about 55 years, though life span varies depending on the individual and his or her medical condition. What Causes Down Syndrome?

Summary 2002 Annual Report NDSCR team Reasons for referral of cases having cytogenetic diagnosis ... Glossary of terms Summary The NDSCR has accumulated over 17,000 anonymous records since the Register started in January 1989. It is now probably the largest single dataset on Down syndrome and provides an opportunity to search for possible causal factors. It also enables the study of the response of parents and clinical services to the new technologies of screening and diagnosis. Please see Annual Report (2002) for details. Maternal age is the only well-recognised association of Down syndrome. Mothers below 25 have an average risk of a DS pregnancy of about 1:1600 rising to about 1:340 at 35 and 1:40 at age 43. The data we have suggests that the risk of an affected birth does not increase above this age. Prenatal screening and diagnosis have expanded dramatically in the life of the Register. Despite this expansion, in 1999 44% of all diagnoses were at birth. Prenatal diagnosis depends on an invasive test to obtain fetal cells. Because this entails a risk of fetal loss, of 1 to 2%, it is only offered to mothers with a greater risk of having an affected child. The estimation of this risk, previously limited to high maternal age, is now much more precise with the addition of specific ultrasound and/or maternal serum findings.
