Patau’s syndrome is a genetic condition that affects around 1 in 5000 births. Babies afflicted with this condition are very poorly and will experience severe physical and psychological difficulties. Unfortunately, due to the extreme nature of this condition many babies diagnosed with Patau’s syndrome will be lost during pregnancy.
Amniocentesis is the usual form of diagnostic test available for this condition and is normally only offered to women that are considered to be ‘high-risk’. However, Vision is available to all women from 10 weeks pregnant. This will simply involve a blood draw from the woman and removes any risk to the baby associated with amniocentesis.
