Mother Tries To Challenge Downs Misconceptions

February 22, 2016

A mother is trying to challenge misconceptions about Down’s syndrome, as government ministers debate whether to offer pregnant women a new, and more accurate, test to detect the condition.

It has been suggested the new test may lead to an increase in abortions, although this has been questioned by the doctor who led trials.

Author and campaigner Hayley Goleniowska, from Cornwall, challenges assumptions about Down’s, and admits that until her daughter Natty was born, she had misconceptions of her own.

The full story will be shown on BBC Inside Out South West on Monday at 19:30 and will be available on BBC iPlayer.
