An interesting read

To be honest I'm finding it a very emotional read and something that has challenged a lot of my own assumptions about prenatal testing. Some of the comments that doctors and others have made to women about their precious babies who happen to have a disability are truly shocking.
Has anyone else read it?

Parents facing this situation need so much support. My cousin is training to be a genetic counsellor so I may recommend this to him.
My mother is a special needs teacher and many children at her school become disabled through accidents. I would be interested to compare the levels of support that both parents and expectant parents are given in these situations. They really shouldn't be any different.

She got a second opinion and now has a healthy 7 year old daughter.
it sounds like an interesting read though
