Early Detection

I’m a big fan of the ultrasound and medical technology in general. I know they can be overused, and I know all the medical stuff around pregnancy can be invasive. But, in my pregnancy, although I should have been a super-low-risk-woman, an ultrasound revealed something that could have been very dangerous if we weren’t aware of it.

However, the idea of screening with ultrasounds scares me.  October is Down Syndrome Awareness Month. When you have a few minutes,  read this excellent reflection by a parent waiting for ultrasound results.
